The ACE Components (ICEfaces Advanced Components) are the next-generation of open source ICEfaces components. Currently featuring over 80 components including the industry-leading ace:dataTable, the ACE Components utilize a blend of server-side and client-based rendering techniques to provide a rich, responsive user-experience with reduced network and server-processing requirements.
Key features of the ACE Components include:
* Support extensive client-side functionality to improve component richness, responsiveness, and scalability.
* Provide a flexible and consistent approach to UI theming/skinning across all components, based on jQuery ThemeRoller themes.
* Support complete flexibility in how forms are used with respect to container components, such as TabSet. TabSet allows the use of multiple forms as required, with no limitation that all tabPanes be included in the same form as the tabSet itself.
The ACE Components are authored using the ICEfaces Advanced Component Environment, which implements a consistent approach to component authoring, meta-data management, and automates common component development tasks and optimizations.
