Much deep should I delve into JSF for part-I ?
Is a very high level understanding, e.g knowing the request processing lifecycle and JSF usability/architecture, design patterns used, .. good enough ?
I would say you need to know how JSF works at very high level (for example, what HTTP method is used and what are the consequences) and what are the advantages/disadvantages compared ot other technologies (like plain JSP) used for presentation tier.
NOTE: SCEA not a programmer's certification, don't expect any code snippets of JSF.
