JSF beginner error: Cannot find FacesContext

Hello guys,

I am finding the error "Cannot find FacesContext" while running my JSF webapp. I googled it and found that in most cases the error is regarding web.xml, right? Well I'm posting this because I think that is not my problem.

I start to prepare an application.. and I fix its web.xml and faces-config.xml. I add the necessary libs. Then, I write an index.jsp with only HTML contento on it. It runs ok.
But then if I change this jsp to one that has calls to JSF tags and it gives me the Cannot Find FacesContext error.

Will anyone help? Below go my files:

web.xml:




faces-config.xml:



The simple fact of putting a "<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core" prefix="f" %>" line in the index.jsp causes the error.
Is it the right line to include? Is the http address correct?

Oh. And I have the following libraries added:
- commons-beanutils.jar
- commons-collections.jar
- commons-digester.jar
- commons-logging.jar
- jsf-api.jar
- jsf-impl.jar
- jstl.jar

Is there something wrong? hehehe
thanks

Can you show the JSP file and also the URL you are using to access the page?

Thanks.

what URL are you using to call this index.jsp?

If it is "..../index.jsp", then the JSF-lifecycle is not entered, and all JSF-tags cough up.
If it is "..../index.jsf" then the lifecycle is not entered because the web.xml has the not corresponding mapping...

If it is "..../faces/index.jsp" then the lifecycle is entered and therefor the message should not be shown.
