I'm trying to use RichFaces 3.3.3, for which I have a working sample in Eclipse (WTP), as a starting point to learn to use Facelets. However, I'm unable to find an appropriate Facelets JAR. I've tried a jsf-facelets-1.1.14.jar I found somewhere, but this gives me a zip file error when I restart Tomcat 6. Elsewhere, I found a jsf-facelets-1.1.15.B1.jar and, while the server launches cleanly, my .xhtml is rendered as totally blank.
The libraries I'm successfully using in my present sample app are
I don't have to use RichFaces. In fact, I'm more accustomed to using MyFaces.
I'm asking for some help constituting a JAR set with which to do my Facelet work. It would be nice to understand where to get the JAR(s) too.
Since JSF 2.0 Facelts comes bundled with jsf-api, so you don't need extra jar to use facelets, if you use a JSF 2.0 implementation as MyFaces 2.0 or Mojarra 2.0 you don't need extra configuration or extra jars to use Facetes, because it's the default View Descriptor Languages for JSF 2.0.

It's devilishly hard to piece together some of this stuff from scratch. I find I learn more than if I simply abandon myself to somebody's framework (initially) like Seam. Alas, I finally resorted to using the Tomahawk examples as I could never find a combination of JARs that didn't crash and did work.
