Are there any decent books, possibly one book, that could teach you JSF and Spring in one go? I know JSP/Servlets and would like to make an easy transition into JSF. I'm looking for a good starting point.

Any suggestions?

Links to tutorials work also.

I know a very good starting point. It explains JSF 2.0 in conjunction with Spring and Orchestry (which extends JSF a bit, but very usefull!)
The downside for you may be: it's german
But maybe there is a translation. I don't know, sorry

The book:
The book online:

The online book also contains the link to an very good example application, which is build up during the whole book, which explains the concepts of JSF 2.0

If you miss some components, take a look at primefaces. Rich faces is not ready for JSF 2.0 up to now (well you can use the old version with some really painfoll limitations).

And no, I do not earn anything with this book. I only really liked it.
Maybe this helps some else, if it's not the right thing for you.

Very good as additional information source is the following book about XHTML & CSS:

It tells you how to build accessible state of the art web sites.
