Hi i am new to JSF , I have a problem how to forward a JSF page into Sevlet. Same thing i will be used in jsp means it is very easy through (form action="") but in JSF there is no "form action ". Any body knows please reply
A JSF page can link to any kind of target, including servlets. However a JSF FORM is expected to talk to JSF. That's because you're getting fields populated from JSF and JSF manages a cycle of repeated validations and error displays until the user either gets the data clean enough to use of abandons the page. JSF also carries a lot of freight that other platforms don't want/need/understand.
In order to submit a form to a servlet, it has to be a non-JSF form, so you usually are going to find life simpler if the form page is completely non-JSF - a straight JSP, servlet-generated HTML, Struts, or whatever. Since you normally pre-load data into a form, this usually means that the JSF action processor that takes you there is going to have to do a forwarding operation to invoke the form setup code.
