Patience is a virtue. We operate on a volunteer schedule here, so the cost of free advice is that it can take a little longer.
JSF's scope objects are plain old J2EE scope objects, for the most part, So if you define a JSF managed bean in Session scope, for example, a servlet can access it using the HttpServletRequest.getSession.getAttribute() method without any specialized JSF code.
There's also a specialized option you can put in your faces-config.xml file that allows Spring-managed beans to be seen by the JSF EL processor. That's useful for injecting Spring beans into JSF managed beans, and it's how I bind my Spring-managed persistence objects to the JSF presentation objects.
