Example Application

Let us create a test JSF application to test the above tag.

Step Description
1 Create a project with a name helloworld under a package com.tutorialspoint.test as explained in the JSF - First Application chapter.
2 Modify home.xhtml as explained below. Keep rest of the files unchanged.
3 Compile and run the application to make sure business logic is working as per the requirements.
4 Finally, build the application in the form of war file and deploy it in Apache Tomcat Webserver.
5 Launch your web application using appropriate URL as explained below in the last step.

home.xhtml

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
   "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
   <title>JSF Tutorial!</title>
</head>
<body>
   <h2>h:inputSecret example</h2>
   <hr />
   <h:form>
      <h3>Read-Only input password box</h3>
      <h:inputSecret value="password" readonly="true"/>
      <h3>Read-Only input text box</h3>
      <h:inputText value="password"/>
   </h:form>
</body>
</html>

Once you are ready with all the changes done, let us compile and run the application as we did in JSF - First Application chapter. If everything is fine with your application, this will produce following result:
