Since this blog will focus on the software side of my life, I should mention that I am an employee of Oracle Corporation, where I have worked on user interface technologies for the last 15 years.  Some day I hope to write a blog entry on why I have decided to stay in one place for so long and what the experience has been like for me.  In the meantime, I mostly expect to blog about technologies that interest me – for the moment this means web-based application frameworks, with emphasis on JavaServer Faces and more specifically on Oracle’s ADF Faces.

Of course, views expressed in this blog are my own and do not represent the views of Oracle Corporation.

    Hi Andy,

    I was in munich on both JSF days. In your session “JSF Component Behaviors” you showed between sheets 45 and 56 “A Simple Sample Behavior”.

    On sheet 56 “What Gets Rendered?” you showed that the onclick-attribute is affected, but I don’t understand why it is the onclick-attribut, why not onchange, onfocus, or some other attribute? Where did you ‘ve set this information?

    Best regards,
    Christian Nicoll

      Hi Christian –

      For that particular sample no “event” attribute was specified on the <f:ajax> tag. As a result, the behavior was attached using the default event for the component, which is defined by the ClientBehaviorHolder.getDefaultEventName() API. In this case we were attaching the behavior to an <h:commandButton> , which defines the logical “action” event as its default event. The command button’s renderer renders behaviors attached to this event in the button’s onclick handler.

      Make sense?
