JSF 2 SelectOneRadio Example

The selectOneRadio component is one of the most component that already had provided in JSF 1 and included in the JSF 2. Radio buttons are implemented in the JavaServer Faces using the selectOneRadio that translated into <input type=”radio”/> while the HTML gets rendition. The selectOneRadio isn’t consider as a replacement for selectBooleanCheckbox, cause the latter doesn’t enforce one selection, but the selectOneRadio component does enforce the user to select one option inherently.

The main attribute of selectOneRadio is the value attribute that is associated (binded) into bean property. SelectOneRadio does provide the ability to populate the selections through <f:selectItem/> or <f:selectItems/> JSF component. JSF 2 has provided a new attributes that not included at the JSF 1; collectionType, hideNoSelectionOption, enabledClass, disabledClass, selectedClass and unselectedClass are newly added attributes for selectOneRadio.
