JoinFaces Starters 3.x

Marcelo Romulo Fernandes edited this page Dec 4, 2018 · 36 revisions

There are seventeen JoinFaces Starters available: six basic starters, two utility starters, one meta starter, six component starters, one theme starter and one extra starter.

While most of the starters can be combined, some starters are mutually exclusive:

  • tomcat-spring-boot-starter, jetty-spring-boot-starter and undertow-spring-boot-starter
  • mojarra-spring-boot-starter, myfaces-spring-boot-starter

You can use the table below to discover the starters that fit your needs.

Not using Tomcat or Mojarra

The jsf-spring-boot-starter pulls tomcat and mojarra as defaults. If you want to change this, you have to exclude one starter and pull another one instead.

The principle behind this is the same as described here:

Example: Using MyFaces instead of Mojarra

dependencies {
    compile ("org.joinfaces:jsf-spring-boot-starter") {
        exclude module: "mojarra-spring-boot-starter"
    compile "org.joinfaces:myfaces-spring-boot-starter"
    // ...
You can’t perform that action at this time.
