You know thats not the way for evaulating a framework for your project. You have very little probability of getting answers If you keep posting every item in your checklist.

Try searching.
PrimeFaces 3.2, GlassFish 3.1, Mojarra 2.1.3

Documentation is very old and wrong.
I mean
http://www.primefaces.org:8090/display/ ... er+Support
It was updated in 2011
I think browser compatibility is still the most painful question in Primefaces.
As for me it works in the latest Chromium and as I read it works in Firefox.
PrimeFaces 3.2, Mojarra 2.1.6 , Tomcat 7.0, Eclipse Indigo, Java 7

I did not check 3.2 but in 3.0 selectOneMenu had wrong positioning in IE. About 100px above the field.

Which IE? Can it be replicated in Showcase? Create an issue if yes.

You will also find that things work as expected in IE9 or IE10 which proves that using the latest browser is going to get you the best out of the Web and not just Primefaces based JSF apps.

The less effort people put into maintaining compatibility for old browsers like IE7 or earlier the quicker users will make the small amount of effort to upgrade to a better browser.
Btw I have checked the Showcase in IE7 and there are few real problems that I have found and none worth creating an issue about.
If you have having problems with your layout then it may be that the page layout and css you use are causing problems in IE7, something which happened to me a lot until it was decided not to bother supporting any IE below 8.
PF 3.4.2, PF 3.5.10, PF 4.x (Elite versions)
Glassfish 3.1.2.2, Mojarra 2.x, under both Java 6 and Java 7.

JSF based framework for touch websites

Within the last 24 to 48 hours, I begun research/reading about mobile web app development before develop 100s of pages using PrimeFaces Mobile tags. In the article (at URL above), I think I saw it mentioned that mobile web app pages can be developed via core JSF only; I could be quoting this incorrectly.

Anyway, this forum topic should not exclude mobile web browsers as well. I tried to access and navigate via the JSF/PrimeFaces web app on my mobile phone, and I was not pleased with the fact that p:menubar and p:menuitem on my touch Android device did not work well at all.

In saying that, I know that I need to develop web pages that target mobile devices, but it would be nice if I could develop JSF pages without the need of primefaces mobile (which is powered by jQuery mobile). I assume that I can create commandLinks and/or buttons, shorter-width pages, etc..., and I can do it without jQuery mobile or PrimeFaces Mobile tags/library.

Last night and yesterday afternoon, I spent some hours creating my first PrimeFaces mobile page (the login page), and had some difficulties at first, but now I know what I need to do to be successful at developing pages for mobile devices using PrimeFaces Mobile.

Please know that I am 'not' complaining. I am just saying that IMHO, I think that PrimeFaces (non-Mobile) components should be compatible with mobile devices as well, and there shouldn't be a need to use PrimeFaces Mobile.

I hope someone respond and correct me if I'm wrong, confirm, and/or further encourage me which way to go, based on their experience, growing pains (in developing mobile web pages with or without PrimeFaces Mobile, jQuery Mobile, etc...).

Thanks,
Howard
