Hi,
I am a novice in JSF. I have learnt JSP/Servlet too recently.

I read a tuturial in JAVABEAT on introdution to JSF and want to start developing small JSF applications.

Please let me know what all do I need?
I have Apache Tomcat Server and I have also downloaded ' JavaServer Faces v1.1.01 Reference Implementation '.

What to do next?
Where do I copy the various jar files that came along with JSF implementation zip file?
What changes do I need to do in Classpath and environment variables , if any?

Try this out:

This is where I started with jsf and it got me going fairly easily.

Good luck.

Just copy the JSF jars to your WEB-INF/lib folder and you're good to go.

You can also try downloading the free application servers like JBoss, Glassfish. They already have JSF support built-in.

Do you have specific development tools (like Eclipse Web Tool Project) that you are currently using?

The JSF for nonbelievers series from IBM DeveloperWorks is also a good resource for those who are new to JSF.

Hey thanks both of you.

I am still fighting with the smallest JSF programs. But I am sure I will succeed.
