From the Back Cover
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 of "Core JavaServer(TM) Faces" has been completely updated to make optimum use of all the new features. The book includes
- Three totally new chapters on using Facelets tags for templating, building composite components, and developing Ajax applications
- Guidance on building robust applications with minimal hand coding and maximum productivity-without requiring any knowledge of servlets or other low-level "plumbing"
- A complete explanation of the basic building blocks-from using standard JSF tags, to working with data tables, and converting and validating input
- Coverage of advanced tasks, such as event handling, extending the JSF framework, and connecting to external services
- Solutions to a variety of common challenges, including notes on debugging and troubleshooting, in addition to implementation details and working code for features that are missing from JSF
- Proven solutions, hints, tips, and "how-tos" show you how to use JSF effectively in your development projects

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.
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.
My only objection subjective is about JSF itself that it doesn't meet my expectations. Beside that, book is spotless.
