I'm new to JSF and my new project is using JSF.
So started preparting JSF.
My Doubt is "Does JSF uses JSTL / Do i need to have complete knowledge on JSTL...
Please Clarify...

No, you don't need to know JSTL. In fact, I highly recommend you don't use JSTL on JSF pages at all. If you scan back in this forum, you'll see a lot of questions from people who tried mixing JSF and JSTL and ran into trouble.

JSF and JSTL can be be mixed, but only if you really know what you are doing. In practical terms, however, almost everything that JSTL can do has a much neater solution using only JSF.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
