This week's book giveaways are in the Jython/Python and Object-Oriented programming forums. We're giving away four copies each of Machine Learning for Business: Using Amazon SageMaker and Jupyter and Object Design Style Guide and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
Now, here, we can't directly access JSP page(http://localhost:8081/JSFLogin/pages/test.jsp), if we do that then an exception is thrown. Because FacesServlet should be initialized (called) before we access any tag of JSF. So for accessing this JSP page we will have to go through the FacesServlet...
Now, my confusion is, why we need faces-config.xml in this example??? (we are not providing any navigation rule, managed bean etc).
And also, all my assumptions are right or not??
Thanks a lot.

I think, I understood it.
Actually, whether we are using faces-config.xml in this example or not, FacesServlet class try to find this file, loads the content of this file into some object, initialize any bean if present etc. So if we don't provide faces-config.xml the FacesServlet doesn't let us to go ahead...
Nothing up my sleeve ... and ... presto! A tiny ad:
