Do you know of a tutorial for building a simple JSF app without an IDE?

Thanks,
Dave

Hi Dave,

You can find a very simple tutorial (IDE Optional) here on www.javaserverfaces.org

http://www.javaserverfaces.org/get-started

You will, however, need to run the packaged application on a server, which you can do using GlassFish v3, downloadable here:

Good luck!

Just to clarify, it isn't required that you deploy JSF 2 applications to a Java EE application server, but it is the recommended approach. Note that JSF 2 will run fine on a servlet container (Tomcat, Jetty), it just requires a couple more steps to setup. Cay puts it into perspective in his blog: http://weblogs.java.net/blog/cayhorstmann/archive/2009/12/29/jsf-20-and-tomcat

Not to state the obvious, but, well... that tutorial requires an IDE ;) very thorough guide for JSF1.2, though!

I'll also mention that chapter 2 of the book you might win is a basic tutorial, without requiring an IDE.

Who's waiting to win one? I ordered one and it's winging its way to my house even as we speak!

Thanks,
