Can you help to sort out this problem... I need to dynamically show a jsf page depending on the data retrieved from the database. This means that based on the data I need to add labels and components like prepopulated drop downs etc to the page which again can be submitted to retrieve the data selected by the user.
Is there a way that exist to solve the problem?? Are there any examples related to the same?? I'd highly appreciate if someone can render help to the same!!

what type of way are you looking for ? I have done something similar to what you have described and for creating the labels and other fields dynamically i had to code it in the backing bean .. create HtmlPanelGroup, HtmlPanelGrid and add your components to the grid..
