OpenFaces AJAX-powered JSF components EAP2 Released

We are happy to announce the second early access (EAP2) release of the OpenFaces AJAX-powered JSF components. The EAP2 release is the last milestone before the version 2.0 release expected in late September. The EAP2 release adds a new Select Boolean Checkbox component, a number of enhancements, several API changes, and resolves issues reported by the developers during the initial evaluation of EAP1 release.

The Select Boolean Checkbox component introduced in this release is an extended version of the standard andlt;h:selectBooleanCheckboxandgt; component which adds tri-state support (two typical states and the third €œundefined€ one), allows for customizing checkbox images and state-dependent styles.

Following numerous requests from our users we'€™ve also added a new demo application, which shows how OpenFaces components can work together with RichFaces in one application. You can see this demo online, or download the demo and its source code.

Please see the release notes for the full list of enhancements.

Before the OpenFaces 2.0 is released, we also decided to extract a code of the testing system we use for automated tests of OpenFaces components and web applications we build into a separate project called Selenium Inspector. This testing framework, built on top of Selenium, allows testing not only JSF-based applications, but any HTML-based applications. So we felt this code may be useful for wider web development community as a separate project.

The module for testing OpenFaces is already included into the standard Selenium Inspector distribution, and can be downloaded here. The support of RichFaces and other popular JSF frameworks is going to be added after we release OpenFaces 2.0, and hopefully with your contribution.

Give OpenFaces EAP2 and Selenium Inspector a try and let us know what you think.
