About This Page

This page discusses plans for enhancements to the JSF CRUD Generator feature in the release that will follow NetBeans 6.5. This page represents a space for planning only, and is not meant to convey any final requirements.

For information on the JSF CRUD Generator in NetBeans 6.1, see JsfCrudGenerator.

High-Level List

Here is a high-level list (most definitely a work in progress!):

  • Use h:outputLink when no user input is being submitted. This removes the roadblock that required us to use session scope instead of request scope. With this change, we can place managed beans in request scope.
  • Search functionality instead of listing all items.
  • Offer ability to generate facelets and possibly jsf 2.0 support.
  • Offer ability to generate an application based on Hibernate non-JPA models.
  • Provide detail in JsfCrudELResolver javadoc.
  • Graceful failure when entities are invalid (see for instance http://www.netbeans.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=151279).
  • Incorporate a BLOB into the consulting agency schema.
  • Generate validation checks based on column lengths (originally requested in http://www.netbeans.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=82490). Note: this would require @Column annotations in the entities to include the "length" annotation element.
  • A more real-world runtime paging UI that lets the user click on page numbers rather than just "next" and "previous" links.
  • Access to the JSF Pages wizard from the JSF category as well as the Persistence category (http://www.netbeans.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=143963).
  • Generate an internationalized application.
  • Take advantage of Java EE 6 improvements in the JPA controllers.
