Marten,

In case you missed it, the ICEfaces Community Edition v1.0 release is available for free download now. This version includes the revised Component Showcase demo that has the expanding dataTable example.

You can download ICEfaces <a href="http://www.icesoft.com/downloads/index.php">here</a>.

Regards,
Ken
Yee,

I see three options here:

You could possibly adopt ICEfaces for specific views/pages in your application and leave the rest as Tomahawk components. This can be done by configuring the ICEfaces pages using a separate URL/port from the rest of the JSF application (essentially two-webapps, one for plain Tomahawk and another for ICEfaces) that would exchange state on the server.

You could adopt ICEfaces completely and replace/port all of your pages to ICEfaces Component Suite Components. This may not be as difficult as it sounds as the ICEfaces JSF standard-extended components are very similar to the MyFaces ones and would be easy to port. The custom components might be a little more difficult, but the advantage is that your entire application would benefit from ICEfaces and support incremental ui updates, server-initiated updates, etc.

We could make our original Tomahawk ICEfaces Direct-to-DOM renderers available to you and you could use those together with the ICEfaces Component Suite Components. There may be Tomahawk components that you are using that we haven't developed renderers for, and there may be some that don't work correctly with ICEfaces v1.0 as we haven't kept them current with the latest release, although any issues would likely be minor.

Ken
Callum,

One of the key features of ICEfaces is the asynchronous server-initiated updates without resorting to polling. If your application has specific update requirements there is a variety of GroupAsyncRenderer implementations available (On demand, Interval, Delayed) that might align with your requirements. See "GroupAsyncRenderer Implementations" on pg. 36 of the ICEfaces Community Edition Developer's Guide for details, or click <a href="http://www.icesoft.com/developer_guides/icefaces/htmlguide/devguide/advanced_topics5.html#1058427">here</a> for the online version.

Can you expand in detail the reasons for your reluctance to use server-initiated rendering?

Dave,

At this stage ICEfaces v1.0 is feature-frozen (due to ship by mid-May), however, we are extremely interested in user-suggested features and improvements and I will ensure that your requests are added to the product roadmap for consideration in future product releases.

Generally speaking, features will be prioritized based on customer feedback and relative complexity/effort/risk in implementing them. FYI: off the top of my head I know that a dataTable that supports row selection has been requested by other users so it seems likely to be added soon.

Thanks for your input and interest in ICEfaces!

Regards,
Ken

I especially appreciate your excellent feedback with respect to product features, etc. We're locking the final v1.0 roadmap additions this week and we'll definately be taking your suggestions into consideration. Of course, we won't be able to address them all for v1.0, but this type of feedback is very valuable for us in determining our ongoing product direction.

Thanks again!

Some of the notable new features that will be included in the Beta release are:
<ul>
<li>Support for Facelets.
<li>Additional component types (Menu, Auto Complete, Connection Status Indicator, Popup Panel, Enhanced Tree control).
<li>Support for Drag & Drop.

The ICEfaces Community Edition v1.0 final release is planned for early May.

ICEfaces Alpha v0.3.1 is now available for free download and deployment: http://www.icesoft.com/downloadA.html

This is a minor maintenance release that corrects the following issues in the original Alpha v0.3 release:

- Cached DTDs (web-app_2_2.dtd and web-jsptaglibrary_1_1.dtd) replaced with correct versions: resolves parsing exceptions when including third party libraries such as struts.jar.

- Unicode input now supported: resolves erroneous conversion of text entered into text areas in Unicode into ASCII.

- Servlets now exclusively call getOutputStream: resolves IllegalStateException "getOutputStream() has already been called for this response".

- In addition, ICEfaces now includes a tutorial on integrating Tiles (part of the Apache Struts project) with ICEfaces. The tutorial can be found in the install_dir/tutorial/tiles directory.
Unfortunately, the Java Studio Creator 2 final release introduced several changes over the Early Access release that have prevented us from completing the ICEfaces tool integration for it as expected.

At this time, we are targeting Java Studio Creator 2 support in-line with the ICEfaces Beta release, currently targeted for late March.

Note that we do support Eclipse, JDeveloper, and IBM RAD at this time. Hopefully you can use one of these tools with ICEfaces until we are able to complete the Java Studio Creator 2 integration.

Sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

Regards,
Ken

Hello,

1. When will you provide integration for JSC 2?

Initial project-level support for Sun Studio Creator 2 (final release) should be available in the next week or so. We're just fixing up a few small issues introduced in the final release version. When it's available it will be posted to the ICEfaces Tools Support KnowlegeBase (http://support.icesoft.com/jive/category.jspa?categoryID=46), and also an announcement will be made to this forum.

2. Is version 0.3 alpha free for use?

Yes, ICEfaces Alpha v0.3 is completely free for both development and deployment. We will be providing more details around the v1.0 product release licensing soon, but we will continue to offer a free license version in the future as well.

3. Will JSC integration be free for use?

Yes, the ICEfaces Sun Studio Creator 2 tool integration will be free for use as well.

Thank-you for your interest in ICEfaces.

Regards,
Ken
