I am new to JSF and started learning from guessNumber example of SUN tutorial.
I got the idea about navigation rule. I mean how navigation flows from first to second page and so on.
But, I am not clear how it go to first page.

This is my index.jsp

My question is how it go to inputNumber.jsp ? I mean, why it search only for JSP file and not any other file?

Is it handled by FacesServlet? Or something else?

You're on the trail. In your web.xml file, you define servlet mappings. If you check, you'll see that you've got a mapping such that any URL ending in ".jsf" gets mapped (and therefore routed) to the FacesServlet.

The FacesServlet will then deconstruct the URL to get the view path. The resource path it builds will then be modified to reference the source JSP page, resulting in a resource pathname of "/pages/inputNumber.jsp". The FacesServlet will then forward to that resource.
Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
