Hi,

I am new to JSF , Please advise me.

I want to use JSF 2.0 which is JEE5 specification one with Tomcat 6.

When I search in the net always all tutorials are using mojarra faces, why do we need to use mojarra?

We have some restrictions in using external softwares so we want to go with Sun's technologies only.

Can some suggest me any link or tutorial which tells how to use my combination of technologies.

Mojarra is Sun's JSF 2.0.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

Thanks Tim for the reply.

I thought the Mojarra is external to SUN.
SO I will start using Mojarra, but why have named as Mojarra, I thought it is a name of the person.

Actually, "mojarra" is the name of a fish. It's the code name for the JSF2 Reference Implementation, and according to an interesting webpage I ran across, apparently the primary reason it was chosen what that they didn't thing "Reference Implementation" was a cool enough name. Plus, presumably, like other code-named projects, it indicates a specific version of the product, just as the code names for the various different Java versions do.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
