Parent Project
Proposal State

This project is created as part of the process of transitioning Oracle Java EE 8 and GlassFish technologies to the Eclipse Foundation as described in The Eclipse Enterprise for Java Project Top Level Project Charter (


Eclipse Mojarra provides the API, TCK, and an implementation for JavaServerâ„¢ Faces, starting from the specification defined by JSR-372.

(Note:  The API and TCK will be parsed into a separate Eclipse project once this initial project population for EE4J is complete.)


Eclipse Mojarra is an implementation for the JavaServer Faces specification (JSR-372). JavaServer Faces (JSF) is a Java specification for building component-based user interfaces for web applications. It is also a MVC web framework that simplifies construction of user interfaces (UI) for server-based applications by using reusable UI components in a page.

Mojarra is included in GlassFish.

Why Here?

The top level EE4J project was created consistent with the direction described in The Eclipse Enterprise for Java Project Top Level Project Charter (   This project is created under the top level EE4J project as one of Oracle Java EE 8 and GlassFish technologies being transitioned to the Eclipse Foundation.

Initial Contribution

The initial contribution includes Oracle-owned code from an existing GitHub repository.

Where possible, committers on the existing project will remain contributors to this project.

Source Repository Type

  • Call out that Mojarra is the RI for the 2.3 version of the specification in particular.

Otherwise looks great.
