Hi David,

How much of JSF is covered in this book? JSF by itself will fir in a 1000 pages book. So just wanted to know if this book would make one very familiar with JSF.

Jothi,

Like Rohan said, the JSF chapter is available as a free download, but I'd like to answer your question anyway.

Standard JSF development is covered, including using the JSF core tags and HTML tags, developing managed beans, configuring a JSF application through the faces-config.xml deployment descriptor.

Additionally JSF validation is covered, including writing custom validation logic and customizing standard JSF error messages.

There is also an example illustrating how to integrate JPA (Java Persistence API) and JSF.

Finally, there is a reference section including a description and a brief example illustrating the use of every single standard JSF tag in JSF 1.2.

One more thing,

In addition to standard JSF, Facelets, Ajax4jsf and Seam (all of which build on top of JSF in one way or another) are covered in the "Beyond Java EE" chapter.
