Hello ,
I am new to JSF and am googling around for a few of my doubts .

My understanding is ::

JSF latest version is 1.2
The implementation providers are Sun's RI & MyFaces
MyFaces 1.2 has a core implementation and also ::
Trinidad , Tobago , Tomahawk , Orchestra etc

So if you want to use JSF you have the following choice ::
a >Use sun ri
b >use myfaces core implementation
c >use myfaces core + ( trinidad / tobago - based on requirements )

d >Believe Jboss has its own implementation of jsf

Please correct me in my understanding .
Regards,
~satish

Latest specification version, yes.
2.0 is in progress yet and Mojarra has an EDR release of it.

To be more precise: Sun Mojarra and Apache MyFaces. Oracle also has its own implementation: ADF.

The other Apache things you mentioned are just component libraries which should work on every implementation.

So if you want to use JSF you have the following choice ::
a >Use sun ri
b >use myfaces core implementation
c >use myfaces core + ( trinidad / tobago - based on requirements )
d >Believe Jboss has its own implementation of jsf


You can use every implementation you want, but you should not be mixing implementations. The component libraries can be used witn any implementation. More component libraries are: RichFaces, IceFaces, IBM Faces Client, etcetera. JBoss doesn't have its own implementation, it only have component libraries: RichFaces and Ajax4jsf.
