  • JSF stateless views and CSRF protection

    JavaServer Faces (JSF) – especially since version 2.2 – provides a good Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) protection. To achieve this, every form automatically receives a random hidden token: Nothing more to do for the developer, JSF takes care of comparing the token’s value against the one stored in the server side session.

  • JSF – Referencing resources in stylesheets

    I recently ran into some trouble when trying to show a background image in a JSF page which was included via a stylesheet.

  • JBoss AS 7 context-root manipulation for web services

    I recently had a requirement for web service availability at root context level on JBoss AS 7. Without any configuration, a web service URL (as the rest of the web application) contains the jars’ name like http://localhost:8080/MyJar/MyService/MyEndpoint whereas my desired URL looked like http://localhost:8080/MyService/MyEndpoint without the jars’ name. Adding the jboss-webservices.xml file to the META-INF […]
