JavaServer Faces Backing Beans


JSF Backing Beans

A typical JSF application includes one or more backing beans, which are JavaBeans components (see JavaBeans Components) associated with UI components used on a page. A backing bean defines UI component properties, each of which is bound to either a component’s value or a component instance. A backing bean can also define methods that perform functions associated with a component, including validation, event handling, and navigation processing.
