I give Anghel Leonard's JSF 2.0 Cookbook ([...]) a qualified recommendation, but with a couple of caveats. Certainly he succeeds in providing JSF recipes that, taken as a whole, are worthwhile for the typical developer to know. But there are curious gaps and omissions. A discussion of the DateTime converter fails to mention the default to GMT, addressed in JSF 2.0 with a context parameter that allows the application to default to system time. To be fair, the new feature is discussed in the section on I18N and localization, but it should have been mentioned in the discussion surrounding conversion...and the implications are left entirely to the reader. An entire recipe is devoted to a new JSF 2.0 element that specifies a required input...unnecessary, since this has been available since JSF 1.0 as an attribute to JSF input tags.

That being said, nearly every JSF developer uses a subset of the features available in the framework. For that reason, a cookbook can help fill in the gaps of feature that are rarely (or never) used. From this book, I learned a number of things about unit testing and management of JSF applications in chapter 9 that I didn't know, as well as file upload and management in chapter 3. The chapter on Facelets should be valuable to anyone that hasn't used it in JSF 1.2.

There are relatively few typos in the text, and the downloaded code examples are ready to use in NetBeans 6.8 and Glassfish 3. For a sample chapter on CSS, images and JavaScript in JSF go to [....].

Strengths: "how to" recipes, RichFaces, unit testing and management

Weaknesses: selecting alternative strategies, "best practice", limited to specific JSF addons

This book covers the new features of JSF 2 in the form of about 1OO hundred recipes. In my opinion these recipes give a good overview of the new capabilities of the latest version of JSF.
The chapters get right to the point with very common problems/requirements in web development and their solutions.
Of course you still need to read more documentation about JSF 2 (such as the complete reference) to be able to completely understand and know the different options.
The main IDE and the server used in the book are NetBeans 6.8 and GlassFish 3, respectively. The IDE Eclipse Ganymede is used in one recipe (Using JSF ID generator).

The first two chapters give a good idea of the custom and standard validators and converters. Apache MyFaces Trinidad and RichFaces are used. Validation is also demonstrated through the built-in integration of JSR-303 (Bean validation) in JSF 2.

Chapter 3 is about file management (uploading, downloading, extraction, export) with the help of Mojarra Scales libraries, RichFaces and PrimeFaces components.

Chapter 4 is another interesting chapter that explores various ways to protect a site. It demonstrates the use of EL expressions part of the JSF Security project which uses a separate scope called securityscope. Roles are based on JAAS, stored in a database or added to the HttpSession. The last recipe makes use of Spring Security to manage a login page.

Chapter 5 provides recipes to demonstrate the creation of various custom components (hello world, image slide viewer with Ajax functionality using the Dynamic Faces project etc) and also composite custom components.

Chapter 6 is about Ajax.

This book, as the description says is aimed at developers with existing Java programming knowledge but I think the downloadable examples can make it useful to a wider audience as well.

I would also like to recommend this book to anybody who is interested in what can be achieved server side, very quickly and with little prior knowledge. JSF 2.0 cookbook explains well how JSF can be used in conjunction other technologies.

In summary if your into JSF or want to get into JSF this is well worth it. If your curious, don't know what JSF is but like doing cool stuff on websites while adding options to your technology repertoire then this could be for you as well.

The book uses huge headers (4 or 5 on a single page!), whitespace, indentation and pages to fill up the pages in this rather short and useless book. Strongly recommend Core JavaServer Faces Third Edition as your best bet on a JSF 2.0 Cookbook/Reference book; and as a supplement to that, JSF 2.0 The Complete Reference. Do yourself a favor and skip this book.
