The ongoing goal of the PortletFaces project is to make it easier to develop JSF portlets that run within Liferay Portal. The project home page can be found at http://www.portletfaces.org. PortletFaces contains a wealth of features that expose the standard features of the Portlet 2.0 API and vendor-specific features of Liferay in a way that is natural to JSF development. The following is a list of high level features:
PortletFaces was founded by Joel Kozikowski and Neil Griffin and was originally sponsored by Liferay, Inc. under incubation. Since then, PortletFaces has been adopted by Mimacom AG and is a sub-project of the edoras framework, which is a suite of JARs that compliment the following stack: JSF/ICEfaces, Spring, JPA, and Liferay Portal. The edoras framework also includes a workflow engine and graphical workflow designer for Eclipse. The project home page can be found at http://www.edorasframework.org.
