Hi,
I have just started using JSF 1.2 to develop a application on Eclipse Indigo on MacOs.
I am unable to use Tomcat since it is asking for Native libraries..I am not understanding what it means.
Can i use Glassfish instead..Is it recommendable??

Hi, yes you can. Also I use Glassfish with JSF 2.0 and it works fine.

PROBABLY:

You may not know that Tomcat is a Servlet runner only, whereas Glassfish is an Application Server wherein a Servlet runner is just one of its parts. As well as JBoss, another Application Server, these servers already contain, natively, the JavaServer Faces libraries. That's built-in to the server...

In order to use JSF with Tomcat you have to separately download the JSF libs and add them to your project.

Which server to choose?

Choose the one that you believe will meet your requirements or you are more familiarized with. If you just want to program small things at home, either one will do, only the configuration that may vary a bit in case you need to modify something intrinsic to the server.

I hope it helps
