The anticipated conclusion to my two part article on how to improve the performance of your JSF-based Seam application by two orders of magnitude is finally available at JSFCentral. I've also released the source code cited in the article.
The first part of my new article, published today on JSFCentral, explains how you can increase the rendering performance of a data-driven, JSF-based Seam application by two orders of magnitude! The article originated out of a contract job I did over the summer (before joining Red Hat). I worked for a group of scientists to develop a data-driven application using Seam, JSF, and RichFaces. That means it comes straight to you from the real-world ;)
Every JSF component has some specific attribute set unique for it. At the same time, almost all UI components have attributes that are common for all of them. For example, onclick, ondblclick, onblur, onmouseover, onmouseout, onmousedown and so on. They are named PassThru because they are rendered one-to-one to the final html layout.
