Guys,

I came across the following in one of the white papers that I got from theserverside,

What is JSF?

JSF�JavaServer Faces�is a specification that addresses the use of a component model to represent individual web
pages. This means that, instead of constructing a set of pages with control flow and specific HTML widgets like text
fields, drop-down lists, and Javascript, programmers build pages out of components and process flows.



I'm failing to understand what they mean by component in JSF terms?

As i see it, components is finished utils to use. Like Selects, radio, checkboxes, fileupload, menu navigations, tab navigations, Result listing in tabels (myfaces/tomahawk has a good dataTable component for this). And so on...

These components write out finished html code. So in your jsp page you only need to include these component tags.
Well you get more info by reading some tutorials about JSF.
