JavaServer Faces (JSF) is the standard Java EE technology for building web user interfaces. It provides a powerful framework for developing server-side applications, allowing you to cleanly separate visual presentation and application logic. JSF 2.0 is a major upgrade, which not only adds many useful features but also greatly simplifies the programming model by using annotations and “convention over configuration” for common tasks.
To help you quickly tap into the power of JSF 2.0, the third edition ofCore JavaServer(tm) Faceshas been completely updated to make optimum use of all the new features. The book includes
Core JavaServer(tm) Faces, Third Edition,provides everything you need to master the powerful and time-saving features of JSF 2.0 and is the perfect guide for programmers developing Java EE 6 web apps on Glassfish or another Java EE 6-compliant application servers, as well as servlet runners such as Tomcat 6.

So far it has been a good book for an intro to Java Faces.
Maybe it is because I haven't read the entire book carefully yet, there is a lot of information here, and maybe it is because I need to do some rethinking.
It takes you through the basics very well, and explains it in a simple concise mannger.
This book was terrible. The setup explanation was so terrible that I spent HOURS just trying to get the sample code to run. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Anthony Scialo

This is a great book that explain all of java server faces 2.0. It would be good a new version of this book with jsf 2.2.
Book is compheresive and detailed.
My only objection subjective is about JSF itself that it doesn't meet my expectations. Beside that, book is spotless.
Good price. I bought the book to get me started using Java Server Faces. So far it has been a good book for an intro to Java Faces.Published 10 months ago by Thomas J. Lavecchia

The expressions are so simplified to the extent that it "release my life from the grip of... Read more
