Simple JavaServerFaces (JSF) Reference Example - Table

In the world of modern Integrated Development Environments (IDE)s, we have become accustomed to visual development, or at least code completion. We have also come to rely on advanced JSF frameworks like Woodstock, ICEFaces, myFaces, etc. A couple of weeks ago someone asked me about how to create a JSF page including a table, and how to "bind" the values to the table. That person did not have access to an advanced framework, and wanted to use a reference implementation. I created a simple NetBeans project which included only the reference implementation. I forgot how strange it is to code everything. A lot of the modern components have taken the complexity of creating the components out of your hands.

Below is an example application which uses the reference implementation only.
