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 )

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.
