There is any JSF 1.2 jars available that could be used by Tomcat 5.5 ???.

All the information that I could find was that Tomcat only use JSF 1.1. for now.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Is it not possible for you to add JSF 1.2 jar files in your Project (WAR/EAR file) (e.g. WEB-INF/lib/*)?

Tomcat 5.5.x uses JSF 1.2 and servlet 2.5 and JSP 2.1. And hence j2EE 1.5 must be used. Is this correct?

I am trying to use Tomcat 5.5.x with j2EE 1.4, servlet 2.4, JSP 2.0. I used JSF 1.1. So far, it worked.

Hi Carlos,

JSF 1.2 uses JSP 2.1 specification and Tomcat is supporting JSP 2.0 specification in latest 5.5 version.
So you will not be able to run JSF 1.2 application on Tomcat.

If you want you can download GlassFish open source application server from Sun's website, which supports JSP 2.1.
