Hello,

three questions on liferay faces bridge, please.

1. We are considering to use liferay faces bridge on a large enterprise project
which needs to be maintainable during next 5 years.

Is there a commitment from the Liferay, Inc. to maintain the liferay
faces bridge in the future?


2. There are strict requirements concerning stability of the software.

Would you recommend our customer to purchase the support from Liferay
and/or the Liferay EE edition?


3. We went through releases history and wondered if there is a typo
on the page or simply all stable releases (regardless of their
age) head to the same date:

I can only comment on one of your questions (you might want to try it again in the "Liferay-Faces/English" Board for the Faces-question, as there's discussion going on while the level you posted on does not (yet) have any posts:
P F:
2. There are strict requirements concerning stability of the software.

and/or the Liferay EE edition?


If you have strict stability and responsibility requirements for the underlying software you use (e.g. Liferay), yes, you should consider buying EE with the support level you require. While technically you could also pay others to support CE for you, we believe EE provides a better value. Each EE release is supported for ~5 years, so you could even stay on the same version. The easiest way to get more and detailed information is to contact the sales department (sales at liferay.com) and explore the options.

Not being involved in the other issues, unfortunately I can't tell you anything about them and leave this for others. Most likely sales can answer at least the first of your questions as well.

(moved thread to Liferay Faces - English sub-category)

Here are some additional answers:

1. Yes there is a commitment from the Liferay, Inc. to maintain the Liferay Faces project into the future, especially for Liferay EE customers with a Service Level Agreement (SLA).

2. I agree with Olaf -- you should consider buying EE with the support level you require. As he wrote, each EE release is supported for ~5 years.

3. We just updated the release date schedule in JIRA, and the new target date for releasing GA1 is August 10, 2012.

News Update: Liferay Faces Bridge was recently certified by Oracle as JSR 329 compliant. In order to achieve this certification, it was necessary for us to develop a branch that fully supports JSF 1.2 (note that the JSF 2.x branches also fully support the requirements of JSR 329). As a result we have an expanded testing matrix and some additional QA procedures to implement. The release date schedule in JIRA has been updated to reflect a release date of August 21, 2012.
