Infragistics Announces NetAdvantage for JSF 2008 Volume 2

PRINCETON, N.J. and ELSTREE, England, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Infragistics, the world leader in user interface development tools, announced today the immediate availability of Infragistics NetAdvantage(R) for JSF 2008 Volume 2, a complete set of pre-built, quality-tested components based on JavaServer(TM) Faces that allows developers to easily and quickly create compelling Java UIs. With these AJAX-enabled components, developers can leverage the power of JSF to build and deliver high-performance, robust Web 2.0 applications.

"NetAdvantage for JSF 2008 Vol. 2 allows developers to focus on the business logic of their application rather than user interface development which saves time and improves the application's time-to-market," said Jim Cook, Java product manager at Infragistics. "We've incorporated two decades of component development experience into NetAdvantage for JSF 2008 Vol. 2 to produce a full-featured JSF UI toolset. Our industry-exclusive hierarchical grid along with every major UI component make NetAdvantage for JSF an invaluable tool for Java developers."

With NetAdvantage for JSF 2008 Vol. 2, developers can take advantage of a host of new features including:

-- Cell Activation in WebGrid(TM) enables users to "focus" on single cells within the WebGrid, and move that focus around with various keyboard keys.

-- Aggregate Functions in WebGrid Column Footers fulfills users' need for a spreadsheet-style data display which shows calculations such as sum, average, count, minimum and maximum. Built into the WebGrid is support for calculating these aggregate functions from the underlying column data in the grid's column footers.

NetAdvantage for JSF 2008 Vol. 2 also introduces three AJAX-enabled, Early Access features allowing customers to preview and provide feedback on future technologies under development. These include:

-- WebDropDown(TM), a new AJAX-enabled component which allows type-ahead data entry making for a highly intuitive data entry experience for end users

-- WebTree(TM) Drag and Drop that enhances the popular WebTree component to support drag and drop features allowing developers to move nodes within the tree as well as add, edit and delete nodes

-- Javascript Event Handling provides event handling "hooks" to allow developers to call client-side Javascript in response to virtually any user action.

All of these components now support the JavaServer Faces 1.2 standard and can be deployed on the most popular frameworks.

Source code is included with every subscription to NetAdvantage for JSF 2008 Vol. 2 and enables developers to modify or extend components on an as needed basis. Additionally, Infragistics offers developer support to all subscribers. Training and consulting services on JSF and NetAdvantage for JSF are available to help customers get up to speed quickly and to start delivering applications without delay.
