ADF Faces provides a number of components that you can use to define the overall template layout of the page. JDeveloper includes pre-defined page layouts that use these layout components to provide you with a quick and easy way to correctly determine the template layout.
In the Create JSF Template dialog, if you select
Quick Start Layout

When you use a quick start layout option, JDeveloper adds the components necessary to display the template layout.
Once your page template file is created, you can add UI components and work with the page source.
