RichFaces offers a good number of out-of-the-box components for different data representation. This chapter will cover output components such as simple panels, collapsible panels, tabbed panels, toggle panels, and popup panels. Be prepared for numerous examples as well as common usages, such as how to use a popup panel to display a wizard or a status message.
<rich:panel> is just a panel or a container for any other content. You can place anything you want inside it, such as text or any other JSF components. A sample panel with text is shown in Figure 6-1.
