Liferay Faces Portal UI Components

Liferay Faces Portal is a .jar file that you add as a dependency in your JSF portlet project to leverage Liferay Portal’s JSP components in JSF. Liferay Faces Portal provides a way to use liferay-security and liferay-ui JSP components in a typical JSF development fashion. It provides a set of Facelet UIComponent tags as part of its component suite.

For listings, demos, and code examples of Liferay Faces Portal components, check out the Liferay Faces Showcase.
