Announcement: Support for JSF in Liferay Portal 7.0 / DXP
Company Blogs September 2, 2016 By Neil Griffin Staff
On August 29, 2016 Liferay released a new version of Liferay Faces based on the new Liferay Faces Version Scheme. Because of our efforts towards greater modularity, many of the Liferay Faces artifacts now have independent release schedules.
This new release includes support for JSF in Liferay Portal 7.0 / DXP as well as updated support for Liferay Portal 6.2.
The www.liferayfaces.org site has been updated with a new portlet on the home page that enables developers to choose their desired combination of Liferay Portal + JSF + Component Suite in order to find project templates (archetypes), and determine dependency configuration.
Visit www.liferayfaces.org to test-drive our component showcases:
This new release has been tested with the following component suites:
- Liferay Faces Alloy 3.0.0
- PrimeFaces 6.0
- ICEfaces 4.1.1
- RichFaces 4.5.17.Final
Visit the demos page in order to find links to updated demo portlets that you can download and try in your Liferay Portal 7.0 / DXP environment.
