I'm not even sure what a microsite is supposed to be. :confused:

I think you need more information about what it is that you're working with.

A microsite is designed to meet separate objectives and has a separate Web address (or Uniform Resource Locator) as its home page. Typically, a microsite resides on the same Web server and reflects the branding and overall visual design of the larger site with which it is associated. Occasionally, two Web sites will collaborate to produce a third, smaller site that both link to (and is probably located on one of the two main site's servers).

a microsite is a separate page of a Web site that has a separate URL than its home page and is used to provide information about and/or promote something that is related to the home page.

JSF does not support embedding other web pages within a JSF View. It doesn't even work very well with HTML FRAME/IFRAME.

If you are supposed to be presenting data from some other page within a JSF View, then the backing logic is going to have to do an internal fetch of that page's URL, parse the content, and make the necessary data values visible as backing bean properties.

Actually, I found a Wikipedia entry on microsites. The generally-accepted term is that it's a small website that operates in a different domain or sub-domain from the main site. You wouldn't normally embed its pages in another site, but rather have the the main site link to the microsite.

Microsites are controversial, since they are potential security concerns and host identity confusion and are subject to UI clashes with the mainstream sites that they are connected from.

But regardless, the information I gave in my earlier post still applies. Embedding pages within other pages isn't supported even in raw HTML, much less in JSF. The closest you can get is Frame sets. Which, as I mentioned, JSF doesn't do well with.
