I've been looking for a web hosting company that says in black and white that they support JSF, but I have been unable to find any.

Does anyone know of a reliable, inexpensive, hosting company that can host JSF apps?

Thanks.

Any hosting company that supports J2EE hosting supports JSF. You just have to distribute the JAR files with your app in the WEB-INF/lib folder, just like on your local machine.

Thanks Greg.

Besides jsf-api, jsf-impl, and jsfcl, are there any other files that are needed?

I use Creator and it already bundles up: jsf-api, jsf-impl, jsfcl, and all of the commons, Java3D, and Spring related jars my app needs.

It almost sounds like I should be good to go with that unless there are some other JSF jars besides those I mentioned that are needed.

Whatever libraries are used on your local machine for JSF development will also need to go on your server that hosts your site. Could it be that using an IDE has allowed you to create applications without really knowing everything that is going on? Without really knowing what all is needed for deployment? It seems to me that a fancy smancy IDE like JSC should have an export to WAR that has everything you need in it.

Make sure that the servlet API version supported is sufficient for running JSF - if memory serves, it requires Servlet 2.4/JSP 2.0, so Tomcat would at least need to be 5.0.

Ummmm...could be...at least for deployment to a non JSF App Server.

Oh, that it does! Also, there is a specific writeup about getting it to work with Tomcat, so I should be set.

Thanks for the info.
