tell me more icon Creating a JSF Page

To follow along with the example, enter values or select options as shown in the instructions throughout the cue cards. Then you will be able to follow the steps in the cue cards exactly as written.

The JSF pages you create for your application using JavaServer Faces can be JSP pages (which have file extension .jsp) or JSP documents (which have file extension .jspx).

You can create JSF pages with the Create JSF Page dialog, opening it from:

  • The New Gallery
  • The JSF navigation diagrammer
  • The ADF task flow diagrammer (available only in the Studio edition of JDeveloper)

To open the Create JSF Page dialog, in the Application Navigator, you will right-click the project and choose New . Then in the New Gallery, expand the Web Tier category and select JSF, and in the Items list, select JSF Page.

New Gallery, JSF Page

In the Create JSF Page dialog, you can specify whether and how you want to bind the components on the page to a backing bean. You can also optionally define some aspects of the look and feel for the new page. In the example, you will not use a page template, a quick start layout, or choose to let JDeveloper automatically use a backing bean for the page.

Create JSF Page dialog

When you create a new JSF page as a JSP page (with file extension .jsp), JDeveloper automatically creates a starter page structure with a JSP page directive, and two taglib directives for the JSF Core and HTML tag libraries.
