XulFaces integrates JSF with the XML User Interface Language (XUL). It satisfies the following goals:
  • Light deployment. Mozilla and Firefox have an integrated XUL engine, so you can us your favorite web browser to run an XUL application.
  • Keep the business layer on the server side. XUL is fine for the UI but if you want to access your business logic on the server side, it turns to nightmare. JSF and AJAX are used to build a bridge between the client and the server.
  • Efficient but with rich UI features. XUL offers a rich UI for business applications. XUL is a simple XML language. There are trees, tabbed panes, list boxes, wizards and so on. You have the ability to refresh the entire screen or a part of it. Look at Thunderbird: it's an XUL application.
  • Facelets support. Add power to xulfaces via this Tapestry-like framework based on JSF.
