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-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>

<servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>

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.

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.
