Rcfaces works with Java 1.4 and higher. Currently the last version is compiled with Java 1.4.
The aim of RC Faces is to offer a rich set of components that makes it easier to build rich and professional Web applications.
To build those components, RCFaces extends the base JSF specifications to offer additional features :
- An AJAX engine.
- The Resources servlet to load resources.
- Application Version servlet to manage resources version.
- Dynamics Content servlet to optimize resources.
- Resources Bundle Client Servlet to enable internationalization on the client side.
