Hello,

I am novice to JSF application. I am using Eclipse(3.3), Tomcat(6.0) and Myfaces for my application. I have successfully deployed the application using tomcat. My question is: this is the part of web.xml which works fine

<servlet>
<servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>javax.faces.webapp.FacesServlet</servlet-class>
<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>*.jsf</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

when is enter the following URL http://localhost:8080/careerMask/index.jsf it gives me the output.

My question is . If I configure the web.xml for .jsp extensions,I get a whole lot bunch of exception ( the stack trace wont end). Who can I map *.jsp to the Face Servlet. Actually, is it possible to map .jsp files to Faces Servlet. Please let me know the problem or any other relevant information.

Thanks,
Rishi

Is it a StackOverflowError ? By default, JSF redirects your requests to a view whose extension is ".jsp". So if you map Faces Servlet to all jsp extension, I guess that it will keep on forwarding to the same view again and again.
