I know Struts and trying to learn JSF. One very basic question-can we have a action method in the JSF backing bean? For e.g. I have a login.xhtml and loginBean.java. On clicking of the signIn or submit button-i want to invoke the loginAction which does the needful(via LDAP - doing the authentication). Where should i put the loginAction() method-can i put it inside JSF backing bean-please let me know?
In a nutshell from my presentation tier i want to invoke Service's authentication method.

Not getting into the JSF implementation details as of now-can go for any implementation of JSF.

Have you tried it in the JSF Backing Bean?
Did it work? Good.

One thing I do like about JSF over struts is that you combine the data and the method to act on that data in one bean.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
