OpenFaces is an open-source library of AJAX-powered JSF components, an Ajax framework and a client-side validation framework. OpenFaces is based on the set of JSF components formerly known as QuipuKit. It contains fully revised codebase of QuipuKit and introduces many new components and features.
The OpenFaces library includes an extended set of JSF components for building rich Web user interfaces and a validation framework that shifts the traditional JSF validation logic to the client side.
The standard JSF UI components are not enough to create a feature-rich and responsive Web application. The OpenFaces library extends this set with such advanced components as DataTable, TreeTable, Calendar, DateChooser, Chart, TwoListSelection (and many others) and provides richer client-side functionality for them. Thanks to such features as Ajax support and keyboard navigation, the OpenFaces library not only simplifies development of Web applications but as a result, makes them highly interactive and user-friendly.
With the OpenFaces validation framework, you can now use standard JSF validators on the client side by assigning them to any input component, both from JSF and OpenFaces library. Or, by the same token, use additionally provided OpenFaces validators that work equally well on the client and server side. The OpenFaces validation framework supports a variety of usage scenarios where data should be validated, ensuring that validation rules are met and data types are correct already on the client, promptly notifying the user of any possible errors. In addition, it provides a flexible mechanism to configure the default validation errors presentation in many different ways.
