I recently started working on a JavaServer Faces (JSF) project. I started with the reference implementation (Mojarra, I think it’s called). I decided I wanted to try a toolkit with more robust components. After some investigation, I settled on PrimeFaces (http://www.primefaces.org).
Development on this project is very active and the support forums also have a lot of activity. I had a number of questions that were responded to very quickly.
If you haven’t tried it out, give it a look. They have a demo of the components on the web site.

Got the JetSki all ready to go. Serviced the trailer bearings. I had never packed bearings with grease before. After watching a few YouTube videos, I gave it a shot. It was pretty easy, actually. You can see when the bearing is full of grease, so it wasn’t a big deal to do. I recommend having hand cleaner on standby.
Gave the JetSki the 25-hour service and got out on the water around 6pm for an hour. The water was freezing! I made a point not to fall off (it’s a stand-up JetSki).
GNOME3 apparently will not work with multiple X servers, so I dumped it and switched to Xfce which is decent. I now have my LCD TV as a secondary monitor. Everything is working good.
I just upgraded my Fedora 14 box to Fedora 16. The biggest change was GNOME. I really hated it when I tried the Fedora 15 Live CD, but I figured I’d give it a shot. It’s not so bad, sort of an OSX mixed with ios interface. I don’t really see the point though. GNOME2 was so much better.
I had to switch back to VMware player 4.0.2 as 4.0.3 had issues and the available patch only works with 4.0.2.
I messed around with trying to get NTLM authentication working via SASL using svnserve, but it doesn’t appear anyone has figured that out or maybe it was broken at some point.
I was trying to avoid using HTTP for SVN to avoid traffic overhead, but it appears I had no choice. I installed all the separate pieces (Apache, Subversion, and mod_auth_sspi) instead of downloading one of the many prepackaged setups (VisualSVN, überSVN, etc.).
It went pretty smoothly referencing a web page I found. I hit a snag where it worked in the browser, but not with TortoiseSVN or the Subversion command-line client. Once I enabled Basic authentication, that problem was solved.
Next up, installing ViewVC!
I’ve stopped listening to this moron. I just can’t take him any more. I listened mostly as a form of entertainment, but this guy has just lost his mind.
