Hi authors,

Does your book suitable for newbies? I come from Servlet/XML/XSLT background?

Does the book discuss and has complete/runnable sample application?

thanks

Absolutely this book is for newbies and pros alike. I know what you're thinking, "how can that be true?" Well, it is, and here's why. This was a constant source of creative tension between Chris and I during the writing of the book. I was always coming at it from the insider's perspective, trying to convey the deep design details and let you get inside the heads of the JSF designers. Chris was always the reader's advocate, bringing me back down and shaping the result for accessibility to a wide audience.

With our two different drives, I think we have the best of both worlds in this book.

Good answer Ed..

With regards to IDEs and servers, the book is agnostic. It provides examples that can be run in any Faces enabled server or any Faces enabled IDE.

Chapter 17 does provide a review of several popular Faces enabled IDE.
