You can code a ContextListener that will execute as soon as the server has started the webapp. It's not a JSF-specific thing, though. Any J2EE app can use one.

To communicate with JSF, the listener can create application-scope objects. JSF can then address them as backing beans.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
