NetBeans 8.0.2 / WildFly 8.2 / OmniFaces 2.0 Tutorial

I suppose you already have installed NetBeans 8.0.2 and we will install/configure WildFly AS 8.2.0 Final. Afterwards, we will deploy and run an JSF/OmniFaces sample application. So, let's see the steps:

Download WildFly 8 AS Distribution

1.       Download WildFly AS 8.2.0 Final from

2.       Un-zip the archive content on your machine

Install WildFly 8 AS under NetBeans 8.0.2
3.       Launch NetBeans 8.0.2 and open the Servers wizard (from Tools | Servers, or Services panel | Servers node | right click and select Add Server ...). You should see this (locate and select WildFly Application Server):
4.       After you click the Next button, you have to navigate to the local folder where you have un-zipped the WildFly distribution. For this click the Browse... button corresponding to the Server Location section. The Server Configuration section will be automatically filed by NetBeans after your selection:

5.       Now, click the Next button. The next wizard page is automatically filled by NetBeans, and it contains the default domain, domain path, host and port. Most likely you will not need to modify these settings:
6.       So, click the Finish button and the WildFly is ready for use. We can easily perform a quick start-stop test from Services panel | expand Servers node | right click on WildFly Application Server and select Start option. Wait until the WildFly starts and you will see something as below:
7.       From the same place you can stop WildFly, by selecting the Stop option:

Configure access to WildFly 8 AS admin console
8.       This is a good moment to configure access to  WildFly administration console. By default WildFly 8.2 is distributed with security enabled for the management interfaces, this means that before you connect using the administration console or remotely using the CLI you will need to add a new user. This can be achieved simply by using the script in the bin folder. Basically, you need to select the option a, and indicate a user and a password:

9.       The user and password from above will be used as credentials for accessing the WildFly Administrator Console (http://localhost:9990/console/App.html#home) as in figure below:

Create a JSF/OmniFaces application with NetBeans 8.0.2/WildFly 8 AS
10.       Create a classic Maven Web Application by selecting the Web Application project type under the Maven category. Further, provide a name to the application (e.g. TestApp).
11.       Next, select the WildFly server from the available servers on your machine and click the Finish button

12.       After the project is created, you need to add the JSF distribution. The "recommend way to use JSF with Maven is to develop on a Java EE certified container and declare a <provided> scope dependency on the appropriate version of the Java EE API jar" source: Mojarra JavaServer Faces download page. For example add in the pom.xml file the next dependency (more examples of adding JSF with Maven can be found here - choose the one that fits your needs).


13.       Next, add the OmniFaces 2.0 distribution, by adding in the pom.xml the following dependency:


14.       Finally, write a simple JSF page using JSF and OmniFaces tags (e.g. display an byte[] image using <o:graphicImage>):
 <h:panelGroup layout="block" style="background-color: activecaption; text-align: center; padding:20px;">
  <o:graphicImage value="#{imageBean.imageAsByteArrayFromResource()}"/>

Simply run the application!
