JSF 2.0 Example Code

Excerpted from  http://balusc.blogspot.com/2011/01/jsf-20-tutorial-with-eclipse-and.html 


package com.example;

import java.io.Serializable;
import java.util.Date;

import javax.validation.constraints.NotNull;
import javax.validation.constraints.Pattern;

public class User implements Serializable {

 private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
 private Long id;
 @NotNull (message = "Please enter username")
 private String username;
 @NotNull (message = "Please enter password")
 @Pattern(regexp = ".*(?=.{8,})(?=.*\\d)(?=.*[a-z])(?=.*[A-Z]).*", message = "Password is not strong enough")
 private String password;
 @NotNull (message = "Please enter email")
 @Pattern(regexp = "([^.@]+)(\\.[^.@]+)*@([^.@]+\\.)+([^.@]+)", message = "Email is not in valid format")
 private String email;
 private Date birthdate;

 public Long getId() {
  return id;

 public void setId(Long id) {
  this.id = id;

 public String getUsername() {
  return username;

 public void setUsername(String username) {
  this.username = username;

 public String getPassword() {
  return password;

 public void setPassword(String password) {
  this.password = password;

 public String getEmail() {
  return email;

 public void setEmail(String email) {
  this.email = email;

 public Date getBirthdate() {
  return birthdate;

 public void setBirthdate(Date birthdate) {
  this.birthdate = birthdate;


Backing Bean:

package com.example;

import java.io.Serializable;

import javax.annotation.PostConstruct;
import javax.faces.application.FacesMessage;
import javax.faces.bean.ManagedBean;
import javax.faces.bean.ViewScoped;
import javax.faces.context.FacesContext;

public class Register implements Serializable {

 private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
 private User user;

    public void init() {
        user = new User();
    public void submit() {
        FacesMessage message = new FacesMessage("Registration succesful!");
        FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().addMessage(null, message);
    public User getUser() {
        return user;
