JSF 2.x and jQuery onload Control

I was asked if there was a way to control Mojarra JSF 2.x components with jQuery. In this case they wanted to be able to control some aspect of the controls from JavaScript on the loading of the document. Here are a couple of quick examples of controlling JSF components using jQuery.
  • Set the background to a light gray
  • Disable form1:inputText1
  • Change the value of form1:inputText2 to Hello World! using a EL assignment to a JavaScript variable.
  • Set form1:inputText3 to be required.

public class IndexBean {

    private String value = "Hello World";

    public String getValue() {
        return value;

    public void setValue(String value) {
        this.value = value;
