It would seem that the following are equivalent: FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getApplication().getNavigationHandler().handleNavigation("/index.xhtml?faces-redirect=true"); FacesContext.getCurrentInstance().getExternalContext().redirect("/testapp/faces/index.xhtml"); Are there any differences and when should each be used?

Is it possible to use a JSF (PrimeFaces) page in the following fashion ? : external application (not JSF-based) does an HTTP GET with URL parameters JSF page reads those parameters (e.g. as described here) and invokes a backing bean business method, without rendering anything to the user's browser The user is transparently sent to a page corresponding to the navigation outcome of the backing ...
I have an application using PrettyFaces and PrimeFaces. One page is accessed using the URL pattern /#{ location : navigationBean.location }/#{ year : navigationBean.year }.

I've tested this using AJAX to set the location ...

package javax.faces.application;

A NavigationHandler is passed the outcome string returned by an application action invoked for this application, and will use this (along with related state information) to choose the view to be displayed next.

A default implementation of NavigationHandler must be provided by the JSF implementation, which will be utilized unless setNavigationHandler() is called to establish a different one. This default instance will compare the view identifier of the current view, the specified action binding, and the specified outcome against any navigation rules provided in faces-config.xml file(s). If a navigation case matches, the current view will be changed by a call to FacesContext.setViewRoot(). Note that a null outcome value will never match any navigation rule, so it can be used as an indicator that the current view should be redisplayed.

public abstract class NavigationHandler {


Perform navigation processing based on the state information in the specified javax.faces.context.FacesContext, plus the outcome string returned by an executed application action.

context The javax.faces.context.FacesContext for the current request
fromAction The action binding expression that was evaluated to retrieve the specified outcome, or null if the outcome was acquired by some other means
outcome The logical outcome returned by a previous invoked application action (which may be null)
java.lang.NullPointerException if context is null
    public abstract void handleNavigation(FacesContext context,
                                          String fromAction,
                                          String outcome);
