PrimeFaces Support in NetBeans 6.10
August 29, 2010 12 Comments
NetBeans 6.10 has a surprise for PrimeFaces Community, beginning with 6.10 NetBeans provides PrimeFaces integration. NetBeans team contacted me some time ago before they’ve started working on this and we’ve agreed on NetBeans bundling PrimeFaces. Now NetBeans 6.10.M1 is released so we can try the early access version of this support.
Most important thing is as I’ve mentioned, PrimeFaces is now bundled with NetBeans so you don’t need to download PrimeFaces manually. When creating a new JSF project, there is a new components tab where you can select the optional JSF component suite for your project. As PrimeFaces is the only production ready library for JSF 2.0, NetBeans team have decided to start their improved JSF 2.0 integration with PrimeFaces so there are no other choices at the moment. Here are some screenshots which are also available on NetBeans What’s New and Noteworth WIKI for 6.10.
I hope by the time NetBeans 6.10 goes final, we’ll be able to finalize 2.2 so current version in NetBeans(2.1) can be updated.
