Now days when you register on any site, they ask you to enter the character that appear in a image.for eg if you register your self on craiglist
you have to enter verification word.
Any idea how can we do that on jsp/jsf website ?

That's called a "captcha"; googling for "java captcha" should point you in the right direction. There's at least one called "jcaptcha".

As I'd mentioned once before, on another thread asking about CAPTCHAs, you could take a look at the web based service from Carnegie Mellon, called reCAPTCHA. It's a project aimed at digitizing books while providing the CAPTCHA feature.
