Apache MyFaces is an Apache Software Foundation project that creates and maintains an open-source JavaServer Faces implementation, along with several libraries of JSF components that can be deployed on the core implementation. The project is divided into several sub-projects:
The standard is based on the Model View Controller paradigm, but is also component-based and event-oriented. Different templating languages can be used. In the standard, JSP is used, other options include XML based templating languages like Shale Clay or Facelets.
The MyFaces Core subproject is an open-source implementation of the JavaServer Faces specification. Each major release of MyFaces Core is certified against the Sun Technology Compatibility Kit to ensure compliance.
The core subproject is divided into two submodules:
These two submodules are distributed in two libraries, myfaces-api.jar and myfaces-impl.jar. Both of them are needed to be able to deploy a JSF based web application.
The latest release of MyFaces Core is 2.3.4. It requires Java 1.8 or later, JSP 2.2, JSTL 1.2, CDI 2.0, WebSocket 1.1 and a Java Servlet 4.0 implementation.
