OmniFaces is a utility library for JSF 2 that focusses on utilities that ease everyday tasks with the standard JSF API. OmniFaces is a response to frequently recurring problems encountered during ages of professional JSF development of the JDevelopment team and from questions being asked on Stack Overflow.

Contrary to some of the other excellent JSF 2 libraries out there (like PrimeFaces, or RichFaces), OmniFaces does not contain much if any of the beautiful visually oriented components that those other libraries are already known and loved for. As such, OmniFaces does not and probably will never contain things like rich table or datagrid components. OmniFaces is more geared toward "utilities" that solve everyday practical problems and workarounds for small shortcomings in the JSF API. Such utilities and workarounds can be based on components, but OmniFaces does not necessarily strive to be a "component library" perse. OmniFaces can just be used together with any component library.
