Modifying our page to capture user data
The generated application, of course, is nothing but a starting point for us to create a
new application. We will now modify the generated index.xhtml file to collect some
data from the user.
The first thing we need to do is to add an <h:form> tag to our page. The <h:form>
tag is equivalent to the <form> tag in standard HTML pages. After typing the first
few characters of the <h:form> tag into the page, NetBeans automatically suggests
some tags for us to use.
As soon as we highlight the tag we want (<h:form> in this case), NetBeans displays
that tag's documentation.
After adding the <h:form> tag and a number of additional JSF tags, our page
markup now looks like this:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
