Chapter 6. Extended Data Reporting and Image Components

Data iteration components named dataTable and dataList used to hold big datasets to display in the web page where the data is stored and retrieved from a database. However, it may not be possible to view the web page datasets when offline; also, tracking the data every time by logging into the site will be a time-consuming and difficult process. In this case, data reporting components' development in various formats is necessary and very helpful. Considering these requirements, the PrimeFaces Extensions library developed an exporter component targeting dataTable and dataList as reporting data components in most popular formats such as PDF and Excel.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Introducing exporter components and explaining their features

  • Understanding and implementing fully controlled custom exporters

  • Working with Image components for image manipulation
