Hello All,

I am currently reading JSF 2.0 complete reference by Ed Burns. I have a mixed feeling
about the book as i can see the facelets chapter is very poorly written. What are the opinions
of other ranchers about this book?

Hi Prithvi

I read this book, and my personal opinion is that this book is really good, as you say I think the facelets chapter is the least explained but I think it is the only chapter, Compared to other books I've read this is very technical it describe the inner workings of jsf, perhaps a flaw is that it hasn't many examples or code.
Regards
Cesar

Hello, Cesar,

I think so you are right. May be i am following the wrong approach. I should take another book side by side
that has some examples to clarify the concepts. It will help me understand more. Thanks for your valuable insight.
I am greatful.

You're welcome Prithvi , but if you're looking for that kind of books I suggest you the book Core JavaServer Faces 3rd edition for JSF 2.0 and if you want a book with a lot of examples you must read JSF 2.0 Cookbook. Best Regards.

Hello, Cesar,

I wanted to have understand the working of JSF as well plus to see some working code. So thats why i am thinking
to use Core Java Server Faces 3rd Edition and JSF Complete reference side by side.

Your any pointers will be appreciated for this approach. Thanks again.

Hi Prithvi, I read almost the majority of this book, this book is excellent for your approach, you must to download the avaible source code for the examples of the book, these are complete and extensive, for every little topic that is is discussed in the book there is a complete example of this topic, The other book JSF Complete reference side by side I've never seen, but I think with the first book you have a great material to learn JSF. , Good Luck, Best Regards.

Hello Cesar,

There is no book Java Complete Reference side by side.

What i meant was to read Java complete reference and Core Java Server Faces both.
From one i will get in depth technical understanding and other in depth working knowledge of code.

Thanks again for your help. Will keep my confusions posted and hopefully all great ranchers like you
will keep helping. I am really greatful.

BR,
