From the Back Cover
JavaServer Faces (JSF) is quickly emerging as the leading solution for rapid user interface development in Java-based server-side applications. Now, Core JavaServer™ Faces–the #1 guide to JSF–has been thoroughly updated in this second edition, covering the latest feature enhancements, the powerful Ajax development techniques, and open source innovations that make JSF even more valuable.
Authors David Geary and Cay Horstmann delve into all facets of JSF 1.2 development, offering systematic best practices for building robust applications, minimizing handcoding, and maximizing productivity. Drawing on unsurpassed insider knowledge of the Java platform, they present solutions, hints, tips, and “how-tos” for writing superior JSF 1.2 production code, even if you’re new to JSF, JavaServer Pages™, or servlets.
The second edition’s extensive new coverage includes: JSF 1.2’s improved alignment with the broader Java EE 5 platform; enhancements to the JSF APIs; controlling Web flow with Shale; and using Facelets to replace JSP with XHTML markup. The authors also introduce Ajax development with JSF–from real-time validation and Direct Web Remoting to wrapping Ajax in JSF components and using the popular Ajax4jsf framework.
This book will help you
- Automate low-level details and eliminate unnecessary complexity in server-side development
- Discover JSF best practices, ranging from effective UI design and style sheets to internationalization

I would have been even happier if the SEAM related chapter would have been more complete - the material there is not really deep or broad enough.
So ita a good intro book into JSF, but not the only source.
Hope this helps.
That is not to say, however, that they are not covered. The book touches upon things like JSF used along side open source frameworks; which is an excellent place to start for the developer looking at the current options available for Object Relational / JSF / Alternate View Technology integration (Shale, Facelets, Seam, etc.)
But I would have liked to have seen a more thorough explanation on custom component creation. The example given in the book, e.g. the creation of a custom spinner component, is something that is somewhat useless in actual production environments. Usually, if a custom component needs to be created, it involves much more complicated functionality; such as a custom 'dataTable' component.
Even an explanation on how to create an advanced custom renderer would have been appreciated, for example, how to create a custom renderer for the 'dataTable' component.
Nevertheless, the book was useful and informative in many ways that I did not expect. The 'How do I...' section is an interesting approach, that was invaluable to me on numerous occasions.
Thus, overall, I would recommend this book to beginner and intermediate JSF developers looking to utilize JSF technology in their development pipelines. Unfortunately, for the most advanced JSF topics, looking at JSF implementation source code, and JavaDoc's still remains the best way to learn these advanced topics.
