There are a couple of different JSF extensions that manage AJAX for you. ICEfaces is the one I use.

ICESoft site

Essentially you develop your app as a standard JSF app, but using the ICEfaces Servlet and controls.

The Core JSF (Third edition) discusses Ajax support in JSF 2.0.
It starts simple and ends with some fairly advanced examples. I would also suggest Core JSF to anyone that want to learn about JSF 2.0 in general.

EDIT:
Some info about the book.

Hi.. Thanks you Mr David very much.. I refered it.. it s a nice book. Thank you again.. would you suppose that the book you mentioned is better than Java Server Faces in action by Kito D. Mann book... I just want to know which one is best for learning JSF

Also I appreciate your guidance Mr. Guy deLyonesse.. Iceface is the best Ajax framework?Isnt it? I suppose that following Iceface is better than trying on other ajax frame work or jsf and pure ajax.. Mr. Guy deLyonesse.. do you think any one can learn Icefaces step by step all in icefaces from Icefaces.org's tutorials? or else how can I learn it..

The ICEsoft site has some pretty good tutorials and documentation, and a community forum for help. Also, ICEfaces is supported by Liferay so even if you aren't working with portlets the Liferay community forum can be a useful resource as well.

For the most part, if you learn JSF or already understand it, picking up ICEfaces is simple. The trickiest part for me was learning how to use all the different custom controls ICEfaces comes with, but the ICEsoft Component Showcase has some pretty good examples and you can see the code for each of the examples they give.
