Jakarta EE Survey 2020

At OmniFaces we poll the community from time to time about Java EE (now Jakarta EE) and related technologies.

OmniFaces 2.1 released!

We're proud to announce that today we've released OmniFaces 2.1. OmniFaces is a utility library for JSF that provides a lot of utilities to make working with JSF much easier.
