Liferay Faces

Liferay Faces Bridge is a JSR 329 certified portlet bridge which provides the ability to deploy JSF 2.2/2.1/1.2 web applications as portlets within JSR 286 (Portlet 2.0) compliant portal servers such as Liferay Portal.

The Facelet component tags are prefixed with the bridge: and portlet: namespaces and are only compatible with portlet environments.
