Lately I see more examples about PrimeFaces Influence on other libraries, gathered a couple of examples;
This is a project led by Bernard Labno, there are 8 components currently and 7 of them have been in PrimeFaces more than 6 months ago. Forum posts linked to each component has references to PrimeFaces. For example;
Schedule: “Primefaces just call the same URL, as the page on which the component is used, but only that component is being re-rendered”
Notify/Growl: “Hello. As I said in some other post, Richfaces need Growl like component (Primefaces have it already). I’m trying to create one”
Focus: “Proposition looks nice, but I’ve just looked at primefaces p:focus component, and it looks a bit easier to use no need to test”
I think by the time PrimeFaces 3.0 is out, Bernard will get more inspirations so expect more components in this project.
ThemeRoller is a powerful feature of PrimeFaces, we have 30+built-in themes and you can create your own with a fun theme designer tool online. Here is an an interesting forum post in RichFaces forum with a JIRA ticker and a similar one from IceFaces Jira.
Atmosphere for Ajax Push
PrimeFaces is integrated with Atmosphere Framework since 2009 and I’ve seen that RichFaces is going to rewrite their push component with atmosphere.
We’ve started PrimeFaces 2 years ago after experiencing all the component suites in our JSF projects and believed that we can do better. It seems we are on the right path since innovation is copied all the time in any sector.
Always bet on the Original!
