Hi , I have been using jquery in my .jsf app but it just works with .html components. I am a begginer in jquery and I am looking for the easiest way to use it in .xhtml files.

¿Which is the right way?

¿Any clue?

Thanks

Not only does jQuery work just fine in JSF, the RichFaces JSF extension tagset even uses it (under cover) to do its AJAX functions!

However, you may run into difficulties in properly addressing objects, because the "id" attributes on JSF tags aren't their "real" IDs as seen by JavaScript/jQuery. You have to use the internally-generated IDs, which you can obtain by examining the generated HTML ("View Page Source"). Note that automatically-generated ID components can change names unpredictably, so for maximum reliability you should explicitly ID naming containers such as forms and dataTables.
