I know Struts and trying to learn JSF. One very basic question-can we have a action method in the JSF backing bean? For e.g. I have a login.xhtml and loginBean.java. On clicking of the signIn or submit button-i want to invoke the loginAction which does the needful(via LDAP - doing the authentication). Where should i put the loginAction() method-can i put it inside JSF backing bean-please let me know?
In a nutshell from my presentation tier i want to invoke Service's authentication method.
Not getting into the JSF implementation details as of now-can go for any implementation of JSF.
