One of the key aspects of designing a component is to make sure it is working on any JSF implementation, Sun RI or MyFaces. Thus, our book is agnostic to what implementation is used to test the components.
FYI, our sample source for the book is bundled with the Sun RI.
Thank you very much for the reply. I already have books JSF in Action and Ajax in Action. Are there any new contents in Pro JSF and Ajax that the other two books had not covered? Thanks.

The two books you mentioned are excellent intros to the technologies used in our book.
Basically, we are not spending time introducing you to JSF and building applications with it, nor do we spend time explaining Ajax (we do have some compact overviews of them, but that is it). The focus is to build cool and rich JSF components.
Here is a quote from one of the reviews on Amazon, which I think reflects well what we set out to do:
It is not a book about Java Server Faces, and then, seperately, 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.
