Dreamweaver could not have earned its reputation as the industry leading Web authoring tool without its superb WYSIWYG environment. JSFToolbox extends Dreamweaver's design view by introducing visual elements for all JSF Core and JSF HTML tags.

All the standard JSF HTML components such as the commandButton, commandLink, form, selectOneMenu, and selectBooleanCheckbox are displayed as their corresponding HTML widgets at design time. Even complex JSF HTML components such as dataTable and panelGrid are rendered as visual tags, allowing you to gain time-saving insight into how these components will appear in a live JSF page. Live Data view is also available for these tags to extend this capability even further.

Additionally, all layout and style customizations are immediately visible, allowing you to apply CSS styles to your components at design time and to see immediate results before publishing your page or even previewing it in your favourite browser. JSFToolbox completely integrates the standard JSF components with Dreamweaver's outstanding CSS support, populating tag choosers with CSS style definitions.
