What Does ADF Faces Bring to JSF?

ADF Faces Rich Client (RC) is a set of standard JSF components that include built-in AJAX functionality. Asynchronous JavaScript And XML (AJAX) is a combination of asynchronous JavaScript, dynamic HTML (DHTML), Extensible Markup Language (XML), and XmlHttpRequest communication channel. This combination allows requests to be made to the server without fully rerendering the page. Whereas AJAX allows rich client-like applications to use standard internet technologies, JSF provides server-side control, which reduces the dependency on an abundance of JavaScript often found in typical AJAX applications.

ADF Faces RC provides over 100 rich components, including hierarchical data tables, tree menus, in-page dialogs, accordions, dividers, and sortable tables. ADF Faces RC also provides data visualization components, which are Flash- and SVG-enabled components capable of rendering dynamic charts, graphs, gauges, and other graphics that can provide a real-time view of the underlying data. Each component also supports skinning, along with internationalization and accessibility.
