In Spring scaffolding using JSF has lot of updates. New release of Spring 3.1.1 with Spring Data JPA, Hibernate 4+, JSF 2.1+ will give a great experience on coding.I already mentioned the new and trendy release of Primefaces 3.2 give us powerful component suite. Notable features Spring 3.1.1 @Cacheable, Spring Data JPA back end Lazy loading and inbuilt Primefaces Lazy loading. I like spring scaffolding feature and the output will be Dashboard application. You can update Dashboard application with the combination of Menu driven application (horizondal menu, vertical menu/Accordion) with the help of Primefaces 3.2 layout or Primefaces extensions 0.4.0 layouts.
