what is the JSF version support by websphere application server 6.1/rad 7.0? seems like it is still JSF 1.0. can't believe it. Can I use JSF 1.2 by just download and copy JSF 1.2 jar file to my own web application lib?

Justin,
Websphere 6.1 supports JSF 1.1. I don't know about WebSpher 7.

I wouldn't expect updating the jar file to work, but you could try it to find out.

You can, but this has two drawbacks:
- Develpment: RAD plugins will continue working with JSF 1.0
- Execution: Since JSF belongs to WAS 6.1 runtime, you will need to change class loading policy to PARENT_LAST in order to override server implementation.
