I was going thru the JSF lifecycle article listed in IBM
JSF for nonbelievers

It says .in Phase 1

Phase 1: Restore view
This phase of the lifecycle presents three view instances: new view, initial view, and postback, with each one being handled differently.

Am trying to understand the difference between "new view" and "initial view"

My understanding is...

If A and B are two pages

request --> A ---> B ---> A

first A = intial view
first B = new view
second A = postback

Still I am trying to understand how intial and new view are the processed differently by faces. Thanks.
