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!

Hi Alex,

The next release will be the ICEfaces Community Edition v1.0 - Beta, which should be available in late March or early April.

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.
<li>Support for "cinematic effects"/animations on components (Fade, shake, slide, highlight, etc.).
<li>Improved overall robustness, performance, and scalability.
<li>Project-level tool integration for BEA Workshop Studio v3.0 and Sun Studio Creator 2
</ul>
The ICEfaces Community Edition v1.0 final release is planned for early May.

The Community Release will be completely free for development and deployment.

There will also be a Professional Edition available under a commercial license that will add enhanced support for high-volume deployments, scalability via clustering, and commercial product support for customers that require it.

Thank-you for your interest in ICEfaces!

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
We've identified an issue in the Alpha 0.3 release that we think is causing the problem you are experiencing.

We now have a fix in place for the issue that will be included in the next ICEfaces release.

In the meantime, ICEsoft Customer Support will be contacting you directly so you may verify that our fix resolves your issues specifically.

Ken

Thanks for the question and your interest in ICEfaces.

Support for dynamic page updates for pages with SVG content is a feature that we would pursue based on significant customer demand.

At this time, we are focusing primarily on the ICEfaces Component library of JSF components that will fully leverage the ICEfaces Direct-to-DOM architecture. The initial releases of these components will use HTML-based renderers.

However, I would be very interested in better understanding your requirements for SVG support in ICEfaces. Please contact me directly via email if you would like to discuss your SVG requirements further.
