Episode 8 – May 2012

Kito, Ian, and Daniel discuss JDK 8, LiferayFaces, the new Jenkins repository, and new releases of ICEfaces, MyFaces, Weld, Ceylon, ModeShape, Arquillian, Akka, NetBeans, and several Spring products.

Comment from Cagatay Civici (PrimeFaces lead) about our last newscast:

“We are not moving away from jQuery in favor of custom javascript, we just write our own jQuery powered widgets designed with JSF in mind. For PF 3 we are actually avoiding 3rd party jQuery plugins like jQuery ui dialog, autocomplete, tabs and similar because PF 2 experience helped me to realize that although using 3rd party work is good to quickly come up with components, they extremely limit you in long term.”
