Mainly, the JSF Fundamentals video is dedicated to
providing fundamental knowledge of controlling the communication aspects
in JSF. Definitely, communication is the core of a JSF application and
is one of the main aspects that dictate the architecture of such an
application. Thinking of the big picture, you need to identify—right
from the start—the main parts and how they will communicate with one
another and with the end user.
After selecting design patterns, drawing the UML diagrams, and
sketching the architecture and the application flow, it's time to get to
work and start implementing the communication pipes using forms,
parameters, arguments, values, pages, beans, and so on. Fortunately, JSF
provides many solutions for ensuring a powerful and flexible
communication layer between JSF components and also between JSF and
when something is powerful and flexible, it is typically hard to
control and inappropriate usages will lead to poor results.
This video is exactly what you need for shaping the communication
aspects and for obtaining the knowledge that is essential in order to
decide what, when, and how to use depending on your application. But,
keep in mind that the JSF Fundamentals video is not trying to take you
by the hand to show you the world of JSF as a beginner's guide.
