Hi,

I have a simple class like customer that has these properties:

- name, id, address, date of birth

I would like to define some <n> customer type objects in the
managed-bean and initialize a table with those objects. So when
the page is loaded it shows a table of pre-initialized customers.

Is this doable. I am new (very new) to JSF/Creator. If there is any
tutorials that point to similar tasks please point me to those.

Thanks.

That is no problem at all. I would start by downloading the MyFaces example application from myfaces.apache.org. There are some very good samples there. Basically you will need a backing bean the contains a list of the objects. In the constructor of the backing bean read the customers from a data source and create the object instances.

A jsp page to display the data in the managed bean.

the faces config xml file to define the backing bean, navigation actions to the jsp.

Hope this helps as a starter.
