well im trying to learn JSF by my own so i have a couple of questions and i hope somebody could help me with those

1) i saw that you can either use .JSP and .XHTL pages .. so which one is better ? which extension should i use?

2) which complement should i use.. i saw that i can implement PrimeFaces, IceFaces, RichFaces, EasyFaces, etc.. which you recomend ?

3) is there a simple tutorial that i can follow ? i already made some simple apps like a hellow world but i wanna go a little further

well thanks in advance and hope you can help me with this.

I'm fairly new to JSF myself. I've been using XHTML pages, which I think is the recommended practice since the JSP and JSF lifecyles clash with each other. I've also been use RichFaces, which has been working reasonably well. I jumped straight into Seam, so I never had to work with JSF backing beans, which I'm thankful for since by all reports (albeit mostly from Seam proponents), JSF backing beans are very difficult to work with.

I think that it's a good question for holly war
As for me, I'm using richFaces+SEAM. Looks fine for me.

If you are just starting out to learn, you could just stick with stock JSF for clarity sake, and go with facelets (.xhtml) As for a tutorial, i would advise using Netbeans IDE first, and then you can create example projects with CRUD functions etc, hands on learning

well i've been practicing using Eclipse IDE, i had no problems with primefaces but whit richfaces i had to install a pluging and it was kinda annoying haha i know Netbeans is better to work with JSF but we dont use that IDE where i work so... --> <--

i've been researching and i can tell that prime and rich are the best components for JSF at the momment, i like prime more than rich cuz its easier to configure, start using and the support on the website its pretty simple but i saw almost the same componentes in both sooo if anyone wanna say something good about rich is welcome .. i wanna learn about both

one more thing, what its that about SEAM ?
