JSF UI Framework

JSF UI Limitations

Updated: July 17, 2023

This chapter presents the limitations to the Seam/JSF web application.

Although the JSF library is not designed to take advantage of the Back and Next buttons of the browser, these buttons work in most cases when called on GET actions, but some inconsistent display could happen if used after a user action modifying data. However, those cache-related display inconsistency aren't harmful in anyway for the system.

Some widgets have limitations in some specific conditions of use. We maintain a list of known problems here.
