    public class SelectItemGroups
    extends UISelectItems

    The o:selectItemGroups is an extension of UISelectItems which allows you to iterate over a nested collection representing groups of select items. This is basically the UIComponent counterpart of jakarta.faces.model.SelectItemGroup. There is no equivalent (yet) in the standard Faces API. Currently the only way to represent SelectItemGroup in UI is to manually create and populate them in a backing bean which can end up to be quite verbose.


    Below example assumes a List<Category> as value wherein Category in turn has a List<Product>.

     <h:selectOneMenu value="#{bean.selectedProduct}" converter="omnifaces.SelectItemsConverter">
         <f:selectItem itemValue="#{null}" />
         <o:selectItemGroups value="#{bean.categories}" var="category" itemLabel="#{}">
             <f:selectItems value="#{category.products}" var="product" itemLabel="#{}" />
