You capitalized the package name ("Controller") in your faces-config file. Java is case-sensitive and package names should never contain upper-case letters.

Incidentally, a backing bean is not a Controller. Although it can contain some controller functions, it's primarily a Model. Most of the Controller logic in JSF is in the FacesServlet and the Tag implementations. Action Processors aren't controllers in the strict sense of the word. They're more of a business logic function with ties to the dispatcher.

Thank you Tim, it was the the package!
Yes I agree, i shouldn't have put my beans in a package named controller.

The reason I mentioned it is that you're not the only one I've seen doing that. I just wanted to get the word out before a lot of people get themselves all confused.

Or more confused, anyway...
