sounds kind of skeptical doesnt it? i mean really, if your going to write a book about jsf and ajax, i imagine at some point it would discuss their interaction, among many other things. no one writes a book on felt hats and peanut butter now do they? and if they did.....well, id read it just to see how they interact!
Well, I guess I'm not the right person to answer this since I wrote the book with John , but I think this quote pretty much says what we wanted to achieve with the book:
"It is not a book about Java Server Faces, and then, separately, a book about Ajax technologies. Rather, it is a book designed to help developers who are interested in leveraging both technologies together to create powerful components for their applications." - J. Sager, amazon review
We are not trying to teach you Ajax nor do we try to teach you JSF (although we do have some intro to both). We expect that you are already skilled in these technologies/techniques. The goal is to provide a professional grade book teaching you how to make them work well together, and how you can leverage JSF to provide some cool rich components.
