If you have/found resources for JSF (SCEA specific), please share.

Thanks.

Although I've been using JSF for some time, I saw that second edition of the Core JSF book was recommended by Sun as preparation for the exam, so I picked it up and read it a few weeks ago.

One of the authors was actually on the JSF spec committee, and I found the book to be quite good at explaining the reasoning behind the design decisions made by the JSF spec committee. With knowledge of this reasoning in place, the actual implementation details of JSF are pretty straightforward.

Thanks David.

But I am looking for some online resource.

Please share if you or someone have it.

One of the struggles in finding resources about JSF for the SCEA 5 exam is the fact that the knowledge needed is more about the pros and cons, benefits and drawbacks to JSF, as opposed to actual programming questions.

For example, you could be an expert at creating a custom widget of whatever in JSF, and miss every JSF question on the exam. You could know the entire makeup of the JSF configuration files, but if you don't know the effect a JSF application has on search engines spidering a primarily JSF site, well, you'll miss questions on the Sun Certified Enterprise Architect Exam.

I know, this doesn't exactly point you to a JSF resource, but maybe it will help you pass by some of the JSF resources that don't quite hit the mark.

I've sorta been wondering myself after having written the beta. Enough questions about it to make me wonder.

I haven't been on too many JSF projects lately.

Out-of-the-box, JSF dynamically creates urls which cannot be spidered because they change on a per request basis. There are various approaches to creating friendly URLs that can easily be spidered. Some of the frameworks on top of JSF provide this capability.
