Packt is pleased to announce the release of Instant PrimeFaces Starter, a practical, hands-on guide to quickly getting started with PrimeFaces to improve web applications. This concise, focused book is packed with real-world examples on how to design and develop compelling user interfaces using PrimeFaces Ajax UI components, PrimeFaces Mobile, and PrimeFaces Push.

About the Author: Ian Hlavats is an experienced Java developer, instructor, speaker, and author of the book JSF 1.2 Components. He has delivered Java courses in college and corporate training environments, including a one-year engagement with Cognos/IBM. He is on the JSF 2.2 Expert Group and contributed to the next generation of the JSF specification. A regular speaker at Java EE conferences, he has given presentations on JSF and PrimeFaces technologies since 2008 at JSF Summit, NFJS, and JAXConf in San Francisco. He is the creator of JSFToolbox for Dreamweaver, a suite of design and coding extensions for JSF developers.

PrimeFaces delivers a powerful set of features that enable JSF developers to deliver awesome user experiences on the Web. With more than 150 Ajax-enabled UI components, jQuery integration, a mobile UI toolkit, theme support, Ajax Push technology, and much more, PrimeFaces takes JSF application development to a whole new level! 

Instant PrimeFaces Starter takes readers through the process of designing and implementing the user interface of a social events web application that enables users to find fun things in their city. With this project, readers will learn a range of techniques for building innovative user interfaces with PrimeFaces UI components. Users can build a mobile version of their web application using the PrimeFaces Mobile toolkit, leveraging the jQuery mobile library to extend their web application to Android, iOS, and other mobile platforms. 

This book will be useful for developers looking to get started quickly with PrimeFaces. It's assumed that the user has some JSF experience, as well as familiarity with other Java technologies such as CDI and JPA, and an understanding of MVC principles, object-relational mapping (ORM), and dependency injection (DI). The sample application included with the book is fully functional and demonstrates how to use these technologies together with PrimeFaces.
