Eclipse with Apache & JSF

Hello there Ranchers,

I am a JSF newbie. I have been trying to get JSF to work with Eclipse and Apache. The way I attempted to do that is quite simple, I tried to follow the tutorial in Although the interface that he used was quite different from mine, I always managed to find an equivalent. And it all worked pretty well until the code contained this line:

And the code wouldn't compile. Eclipse would say:
The import javax.faces cannot be resolved

The way I added JSF is by File->New Project->Web->Dynamic Web Project, Entered a project name, Pressed Next, I ticked Java Server Faces. Do you know why Eclipse is doing so? Thanks in advance.

Usually to me that means that the class isn't in the classpath, but I am no eclipse expert.

You might also want to see if something like Excadel, which is a bunch of plugins with Eclipse for JSF development, and is free.

Never uses myEclipse...

However, just wonder.. Have you entered your JSF library in project's build path? (Right click on project > properties > Build Path, add your jar for JSF implementation)
I agree. Here's the link:
