Installing and configuring PrimeFaces

The PrimeFaces library comes as a single jar file and doesn't have any mandatory third-party library dependencies. So to use PrimeFaces, it is sufficient to add PrimeFaces jar along with a JSF implementation library such as Oracle's Mojarra or Apache's MyFaces.

However, based on the PrimeFaces features that you want to use, you may need to add some third-party libraries. The following table describes library dependency needed for a particular feature:
