Hi All,

I am getting an issue while working on JSF 2.0 deployed on WebSphere server 7.

I have tried so many option but I am not able to resolve below issue. Can you please help?

[1/08/13 21:02:11:406 IST] 0000000d config I Initializing Sun's JavaServer Faces implementation (1.2_07-b03-FCS) for context '/test'
[1/08/13 21:02:12:953 IST] 0000000d config E Unable to instantiate ExpressionFactory 'com.sun.el.ExpressionFactoryImpl'

[1/08/13 21:02:13:390 IST] 0000000d webapp E notifyServletContextCreated SRVE0283E: Exception caught while initializing context: {0}
com.sun.faces.config.ConfigurationException: Incorrect JSP version found, method com.sun.el.ExpressionFactoryImpl does not exist.
at com.sun.faces.config.ConfigureListener.registerELResolverAndListenerWithJsp(

I have added below jar in server classpath i.e at C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP\runtimes\base_v7\lib but issue is still there

1. el-api-2.2.jar
2. el-impl-2.2.jar
3. jsf-api-2.0.3-b03.jar or jsf-api-2.0.jar
4. jsf-impl-2.0.3-b03.jar or jsf-impl-2.0.jar
5. jsf-nls.jar

I have also tried to add jstl-impl-1.2.jar but same issue is occurring.

Another question come in my mind, we are using API of JSF 2.0 and server is printing Initializing Sun's JavaServer Faces implementation (1.2_07-b03-FCS).
Instead of 1.2 it should be 2.0 Is it correct?

I also read each and every artical on internet about this issue but still not able to fix this issue. Please help..

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Umesh!

That question is very WAS-specific so I'm going to move it to the WebSphere forum where hopefully someone can give you some help.
