Example Application

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

StepDescription
1Create a project with a name helloworld under a package com.tutorialspoint.test as explained in the JSF - First Application chapter.
2Modify home.xhtml as explained below. Keep rest of the files unchanged.
3Compile and run the application to make sure business logic is working as per the requirements.
4Finally, build the application in the form of war file and deploy it in Apache Tomcat Webserver.
5Launch 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:outputText example</h2>
   <hr />
   <h:form>
      <h3>Text</h3>
      <h:outputText value="Hello World"/>
   </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 - Create Application chapter. If everything is fine with your application, this will produce following result:
