Book Review: Instant PrimeFaces Starter

Hello, how are you?

I have been invited to write a review for the book: Instant PrimeFaces Starter – Packtpub.

This book is an excellent material to those that want a full web application JSF + EJB + JPA. What I loved about this book is the code that works to web and mobile clients.

It details the code about how to get a code working with different type of clients, what is necessary to do if we want a responsive application.

This book does not teach about Primefaces, but teaches how to apply its components into your code.

I believe that the only thing that I did not like about this book is about the code indentation. Sometimes there are some code aligned in a straight line and that makes harder to read the code.

The code has good practices of development when we talk about JSF and JPA.

If you are looking for a book that has a full JEE application, with a code that is written with good practices and can be accessed by browsers of pcs and mobiles, this is the right book to buy.

I hope you guys like it,

See you later.

  1. Hi:

    I’m trying to install the said downloadable code in my eclipse juno but there’s a error in FacesUtils.java: return ctx.getApplication().evaluateExpressionGet(ctx, “#{” + name + “}”, Object.class);
    saying “The type javax.el.ELException cannot be resolved. It is indirectly referenced from required .class files”

    and also in contactList.xhtml, i got yellow and red lines.

    Please advise what to do.

    Thanks in advance.
