Does anyone know anything about this Apress book Beginning JSF™ 2 APIs and JBoss® Seam ?
According to a review at Amazon Customer Reviews
the book DOES NOT have anything to do with JSF 2 features, but only JSF 1.2 . Is this true?
If that's the case, wouldn't this be unethical considering that the author and Apress are marketing it as a JSF 2 book with the promise that
Beginning JSF™ 2 APIs and JBoss® Seam gets you up to speed with the new JSF 2.x API features and how they’re implemented using the latest Seam web framework. This quick–start tutorial is the fastest way to get started on JSF 2, Facelets, and Seam, and with it you’ll take the most useful features in the frameworks and apply them using best practices."

I'm interested in hearing from other readers as the book is at the top of my list for the next buy.

Shouldn't you be able to tell from the source code/library dependencies? The first chapter instructs the reader to download a JSF 2.0 implementation.

I'd probably just grab the source and grep for things known to be in JSF 2.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
