The book has lots of examples, but fails to explain them.

Even so, this book is a good start, and I recommend it to anyone in the same situation.

While I am still undecided about some of the virtues of JavaServer Faces, this is easily the best resource that I am aware of for those wanting to pick up the technology.

Part of the problem (in my opinion) with JSF are the changes between versions and the complexity when coexisting with other complimenting technologies like JSP, annotations and even HTML and containers. This is the main strength of this book since it provides a roadmap for navigating the intricacies and gotchas without making the core text illegible. Yes, the text is scattered with side comments but it still allows the knowledge to flow without being too distracting.

I also found the examples perfect in complexity and size. They highlight the points from the text without dominating the book and forcing the user to skip pages at a time. The code could have been reduced if the authors used more code snippets rather than complete listings, but the full code was often useful since the book is aimed at beginner to intermediate users that will benefit from having the big picture provided.

It is a Beginner to Intermediate JSF book, and users of that level will benefit from this book as both a learning and reference resource and in my opinion it is worth a place on the JSF-user book shelf.

Far too many books these days fail to actually tell you what you need to know, and fail to prioritize the "must knows" from the "extras". Actually, far too many are just plain wrong in some critical aspect. This, however, is well written from a teaching/learning perspective, and also complete, relevant, well prioritized. Oh, and right :)

I really liked this book, because it gave me answers where other books on JSF could not. It is well written, and introduces the concepts as you need them. Highly recommended.

I bought before the book 'JavaServer Faces 2.0, The Complete Reference' and I was not totally satisfied. I have found better and clearer explanations in this new book (Core JavaServer Faces) about some points I did not like in the first book. Remark: I have not read the chapter about custom components yet (in the 2 books).

OUt of the many JSF books around the Third edition of CJSF has got to be the best.

The author clearly introduces basic bean management, navigation, validation and conversions. The book covers JSf 1 and 2, so no one will be left out.

All of the new developers on my team are constantly stealing this book from me.

This book was terrible. The setup explanation was so terrible that I spent HOURS just trying to get the sample code to run. I would rather jump off a bridge then ever buy a book from these authors again. STAY AWAY

Good coverage of the fundamentals necessary for a solid foundation.

The flow could be improved. At times the authors jumped from point x to point y assuming the readers can see the logic. But I found them to be very long jumps. Still a very good book.

For entry level JSF developers the book would be extremely helpful. It takes you through the basics very well, and explains it in a simple concise mannger. However, if you are an intermediate to advanced JSF developer the book does not help much in understanding the deepers dos and don'ts of JSF - this while about 50% of the book are covering the very basics of the JSF basics.

Sections that would be helpful in the book are:
1. Developing for proper handling of the back button.
2. Older JSF issues in rebinding in ViewScope to the already initialized properties and how to circumvent.
3. Handling forms (and form resubmission) and guidelines on when to redirect, link and post (related to back button).
4. The FacesContext and all its glory

In short - a very nice book for those starting with JSF - if you however are looking for the JSF secrets and expert advice - then this book is not for you.
