Mark Wielaard: New GPG key.
Finally created a new GPG key using gnupg. The old one was a DSA/1024 bits one and 8 years old. The new one is a RSA/2048 bits one. I will use the new one in the future to sign any release tarballs I might create. pub 2048R/57816A6A 2011-01-29 Key f...

I wrote down upgrades instructions in a hope to help other newbies to create composite UI with JSF 2.0. Nevertheless, you should read the original text because I won't explain the concepts behind creating Composite User Interfaces and neither rephrase Ed Burns.

There are tons of related material on the web, but after reading several blogs and tutorials I've choosen the Mr. Burns' ones due to the simplicity of the example. If you know other good material to start learning UI composite elements with JSF 2.0, please write the URL in the bottom of this page.

I also ...
