I was just started learning JSF 2.0, i came to know that annotations can be used in JSF2.0 which can eliminate the use of web.xml and faces-config.xml

i tried to search the web for such kind of example, but unable to find one.

can anyone please help me in this

Rather than "eliminate", let's say "reduce". Not all of the options that can be specified in faces-config and web.xml have annotation equivalents.

Annotations are a mixed blesing. They cut down on the need to do side editing in a config file, but if you don't have good shop documentation and good standards, it can result in playing hide-and-seek trying to find where a definition is being made.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.

For a start up project, you can use NetBeans to create such one, and learn JSF.

But in realworld project, when yuo want to change some default settings, I think the web.xml and faces-config.xml is necessary.
I agree. Here's the link:
