I want to display multiple String lines (placed in a ArrayList as a backing bean property) on my JSF page. How can I do this? which JSF component suits my need? Please help me.

In stock JSF, that pretty much means wrapping the ArrayList in a ListModel and rendering in a DataTable.

RichFaces has some extra tags designed to display multiple list items such as bullet lists.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.

as Tim Holloway said, h:dataTable or rich:dataTable would be the most basic and appropriate components for this
