Hi Guys,
I know JSP/Servlet basics on J2EE5. I am planning to learn JSF.
Which one is the main version of JSF in industry, 1.2 or 2.0?
As a new starter, should I start from 1.2 or skip to 2.0 directly?
Which books are good?
Thanks a lot!

No serious JSF hand should be without either JSF 2 - the complete reference (burns/
schalk) and Core JSF 3rd edition (geary/horstmann). The latter is more up to date if
you're on a budget, however I'd strongly advise buying both. There are flaws in both
books, but by the time you're able to appreciate that, the books have achieved what
they set out to do, when they're "well thumbed". Good luck, don't ever give up.

Regards,
Brendan.
