Hi all,

I'm looking to get into JSF... though I dont know which book to learn from... Core JSF 3rd edition looked good as well as JSF 2.0 The Complete Reference...


What do you advise?


===>SCJP 1.5(72%)<===
==>SCWCD1.5(76%)<===

I liked Core JSF. I didn't read the complete reference one so I can't compare directly.

Thanks! Core JSF it is! Only problem now is to find a local supplier...all the local suppliers seem to have the same books and none of them have Core JSF.

If I can't get a copy of that maybe I should get a copy of Pro JSF 2.0 and AJAX(since that is available here)..Is anybody familiar with that one(and is it suitable for a JSF beginner)?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
