In this section, we will go through the development environment setup process to get ready for developing the TechBuzz application. As PrimeFaces is a lightweight UI component framework for JSF-based applications, there are no specific requirements for particular IDEs, web servers, or databases. You can use your favorite IDE, servlet container, and database.
The TechBuzz application will be developed following three-tier architecture. We will be using JSF/PrimeFaces for the presentation tier, Spring for the business tier, and Spring JDBC for the persistence tier.
