how to include one jsf page in another jsf page ?

I need to include one jsf page into another jsf page. (Both are JSF pages)

say page2 has to be included in page1. page1 and page2 are supposed to use same backing bean to update their page values. In fact both page1 and page2 are supposed to be as one single page. Since this is creating a huge monster page.. i am planning to move out some stuff and create a separate page called 'page2' and want to include this inside page1 and during rendering both page values are updated from single backing bean

Will a simple <@include file="page2.jsf"> work in page1. I am aware that to do this we need to place the contents of page2 in <f:subView></f:subView> tags. But am not sure if this works for a single backing bean. Will this update both the pages the included page and the including page with the values from the same singlebacking bean during rendering ??

My other concern is how do i configure page2 on the face-config.xml ?

Am really new to this JSF include idea.. How do I go about... Please hollar again if my requirement is not clear.. I can elucidate well. a quick reply is really appreciated.
