I have a simple class like customer that has these properties:
- name, id, address, date of birth
I would like to define some <n> customer type objects in the managed-bean and initialize a table with those objects. So when the page is loaded it shows a table of pre-initialized customers.
Is this doable. I am new (very new) to JSF/Creator. If there is any tutorials that point to similar tasks please point me to those.

That is no problem at all. I would start by downloading the MyFaces example application from myfaces.apache.org. There are some very good samples there. Basically you will need a backing bean the contains a list of the objects. In the constructor of the backing bean read the customers from a data source and create the object instances.
A jsp page to display the data in the managed bean.
the faces config xml file to define the backing bean, navigation actions to the jsp.
