What do you mean by jsf specification? Is it something like EJB or web container specification??
So do we have different implementations for JSF by different vendors???

1. If so where do i get the specification for jsf??
2. How does JSF gain from having different implementations unlike other frameworks??
3. How do different implementations differ from each other??

JSF is a specification like EJB. There are many implementations to it.

See a introduction of JSF at http://www.oyejava.com/tiki-index.php?page=JSF

See the comparison matrix in the references section of the above URL.

Different implementations provide rich component libraries. Also there is strong AJAX support in many of the frameworks. Though the portability is still not good between frameworks but hopefully that will improve with time.

The master specification for JSF is a section of Sun's JEE spec document. JSF is part of JEE, just like servlets, JSP and the other server technologies.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
