We’re pleased to announce the launch of RichFaces 4.0, the latest update to the RichFaces JBoss Community project, which provides an advanced, fully functioning user interface (UI) component library.

Running on JBoss Application Server 6 and available at http://www.jboss.org/richfaces, RichFaces 4.0 goes beyond simply supporting JavaServer Faces (JSF) 2.0 by extending multiple areas of JSF, including usability, performance tuning, dynamic resources and UI skinning, in an effort to allow users to take full advantage of all the productivity enhancements of JSF 2.0.

Beyond extended capabilities for JSF 2.0, RichFaces 4.0 also provides:

  • Client-side bean validation integrated with Java EE 6 specification, contributing to greater developer productivity and reduced bugs due to "write-once" validation logic

  • Advanced queuing to match the high performance characteristics of real enterprise applications for more responsive rich Internet applications (RIA) that more easily integrate with Java EE

  • Push component upgrades, including support for various transport mechanisms based on concrete browser support, including Comet and HTML5 WebSockets

You can try out the RichFaces 4 components in the cloud now via Google App Engine or by downloading it directly from www.jboss.org/richfaces/download/stable.
