Liferay Faces Alloy is a JAR that JSF developers can add as a dependency to their portlet WAR projects in order to utilize Alloy UI in a way that is consistent with JSF development.
The project provides a set of UI components that are JSF equivalents of the aui: JSP tag library provided by Liferay Portal:
- Layout: aui:panel, aui:column, aui:button-row, aui:form, aui:fieldset
- UI Components: aui:list, aui:list-item, aui:text-box-list, aui:text-box-list-item
- Composite Components: aui-cc:button, aui-cc:input, aui-cc:message, aui-cc:messages, aui-cc:select
Liferay Partners Triton and Mimacom initially developed JSF projects at portletfaces.org and contributed them to Liferay. Support will be provided as part of the Liferay EE subscription when Liferay Faces GA is released.
