JBoss provides eclipse plugin for JSF pages. You can download from the below link.

Create a Dynamic Web Project in eclipse and then add all required libraries in WebContent/WEB-INF/lib folder, do required configuration in web.xml.

I am sure you can find the web.xml setup in myfaces bundle.

The core MyFaces and Sun Reference Implemenation JSF systems are interchangeable at the application programming/page design level, though you should read their respective sets of instructions for how to properly configure them.

The MyFaces project in total also has 3 other subsystems, each of which is optional and which (supposedly) can be used either with the MyFaces core of the Sun RI. They are Tomahawk, Trinidad and Tobago.

I use Tomahawk. It adds things such as sortable datatable displays to the core functionality of standard JSF. Trinidad, is (I think) the MyFaces version of Oracle's ADF JSF support. Tobago is new and I haven't checked it out yet.

Oracle ADF Faces is exactly what I need, so I've done some googling, and I've read that Oracle donated ADF to Apache Foundation, and ADF become project Trinidad which is part of Apache MyFaces.

Thing is, that I want to use it in Eclipse. I've managed to write JSF pages in Eclipse jee, and deploy&run within Eclipse, but I don't know how to include MyFaces into Eclipse.


I would be happy if I could use those components manualy (without having them visualy in editor). This took me almost two days without success, so I've already coded some things in pure JSF.
