Create flexible and extensible interfaces in JavaServer Faces (JSF) using subviews and tiles
Source: Prentice Hall PTR
User interfaces are typically the most volatile aspect of Web applications during development, so it's crucial to create flexible and extensible interfaces. In this chapter download from Core JavaServer Faces, Second Edition, learn how to achieve that flexibility and extensibility by including common content. First, explore standard JavaServer Pages (JSP) mechanisms, such as JSP includes and JSTL imports, that you can use to include common content in a JSF application. Next, study the use of the Apache Tiles package with JSF to build consistent, reusable user interfaces.
