I wanted a help in understanding how to consume web services, build a JSF web page and deploy the entire utility in Google APP Engine.
My Application should retrieve the weather of a particular location when the zip is entered
retrieve the names of all the friends in a users facebook by providing a third party authentication using the OAuth 2.0
Retrieve the statuses of a users Twitter friends.
SOAP or REST services can be used to accomplish this in NetBeans 7.3 IDE.... Can some one please help me with

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Vinay!

We're here to help answer questions, but it sounds like you have quite a bit of basic study you need to do first.

Web Services are not something that JSF is designed to support, but if you include something like Apache Axis to handle the web services and use the web service functions to interact with POJO objects stored in Application or Session scopes, JSF can easily tap into them and vice versa.

Thank you for the prompt reply. Can I get some information on how to utilize the WSDL file of a service and build third party web applications for facebook, twitter etc.
