RichFaces. Building applications for Java Enterprise Edition, featuring JBoss and Seam

Category: Java, JEE, Android programming

The course covers all the stages of building rich enterprise application using the popular JBoss technology stack:

  • RichFaces – a library of rich ajax components conforming to the JavaServer Faces standard (The current version can be seen in the official showcase),
  • Seam 3 – a set of CDI modules, enriching the standard EE6 platform,
  • JBoss – an enterprise-grade application server, built on top of reliable RedHat technologies such as Hibernate and Weld;
  • Eclipse IDE with the JBoss Tools plugin – an integrated development environment, featuring drag and drop web editor.

The JBoss stack offers many unique qualities, but above all it is a certified implementation of the industry standard JEE6 platform (Java Enterprise Edition 6). Participants will learn the fundamental, vendor-neutral:

  • EJB 3.1 (Enterprise Java Beans),
  • JSF 2.1 (JavaServer Faces),
  • JPA 2 (Java Persistence Architecture),
  • EL, JSR-303, JTA, JNDI, CDI.

Knowledge acquired during the training can be applied in any standard Java EE 6 environment, using not only JBoss AS but also Glassfish, Weblogic, Websphere, TomEE, Resin and any other EE6 certified application server. Also, in addition to Richfaces any other component suite can be used, such as IceFaces, PrimeFaces


4 days


  1. Domain model and the database layer – Java Persistence Architecture 2:
    • basic mappings and relations, life cycle of an entity;
    • complex mappings: inheritance, composition, uni- and bidirectional relations;
    • surrogate and natural primary keys, multicolumn keys, implied values;
    • JPQL queries;
    • typed queries: Criteria API;
    • collections of simple and embeddable types, ordering collections;
    • validation using Bean Validation:
      • built-in validators,
      • custom validators.
      • advanced validation using SEAM3.
  2. The service layer:
    • resources and the JNDI tree: java:comp/env, java:global/env, java:app/env;
    • EJB 3.1: stateless and stateful session beans;
    • remote, local and no-interface views, remote calls and argument passing;
    • desktop applications as remote EJB clients;
    • services using JPA, persistence context propagation;
    • Container Managed Transactions and Application Managed Transactions;
    • asynchronous calls, scheduling;
    • CDI: managed beans, factories, dependency injection, events;
    • coexistence of CDI and EJB beans;
    • basic SOAP service with JAXB mapping;
    • basic RESTful service (using JSON and XML).
  3. The presentation layer: JavaServer Faces 2.1:
    • Facelets: syntax, components, templates;
    • Expression Language, deferred expresions;
    • Managed Beans, scopes;
    • Components (inputs, selects, panels, iterators);
    • integration with JSR-303;
    • JSF life cycle: building and restoring view, conversion, validation, actions, using FacesContext;
    • collections and the usual problems;
    • Using Ajax, with and without writing Javascript;
    • common patterns and pitfalls, solutions to typical problems, using OmniFaces utilities:
      • dependent inputs,
      • master/detail views,
      • paging large sets of data,
      • cross-component validation,
      • bookmarkable URLs,
      • custom converters for use in UISelectOne.
