I am developing a simple reporting web application. The app server is WAS 6.0, I believe it only supports JSF 1.0. Am I correct?

Also Core JavaServer Faces books seems to be written for JSF 1.0. I just would like to double check this with someone. If you have read any other JSF book how good is it compared to Core JavaServer Faces and specifically for displaying database tables? TIA.

Yes.

If you are just displaying the database tables, probably there are 2 JSF components which you should take a look at.
One is "dataTable" and another is "panelGrid"

IBM's implementation of JSF provides some extensions, of which one of them is a JSP Panel.

I would recommend

- JSF In Action - Manning, KittoDMann
- Java Server Faces - ORielly, Hans Bergsten

Latter is good for your specific thing.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
