OmniFaces is an utility library for JSF 2 that focusses on utilities that ease everyday tasks with the standard JSF API. OmniFaces is a response to frequently recurring problems encountered during ages of professional JSF development of the JDevelopment team and from questions being asked on Stack Overflow.

OmniFaces is the Swiss army knife of the JSF world. At the same time, it’s a most unusual JSF framework. OmniFaces doesn’t bring many visual JSF components. Instead, it’s sort of orthogonal to other JSF component frameworks. It adds what’s seems to be missing in the core JSF framework. OmniFaces is more geared toward "utilities" that solve everyday practical problems and workarounds for small shortcomings in the JSF API. Such utilities and workarounds can be based on components, but OmniFaces does not necessarily strive to be a "component library" perse.

An important design goal will be to have as few dependencies as possible and to be minimally invasive. OmniFaces should principally integrate perfectly well with most other JSF component libraries. Even more, the OmniFaces showcase application uses PrimeFaces.
