Basically when we set out to write the book, I had all of the current copies of the other Faces books and I read through them judiciously. I wanted to make sure our book provided a value add on top of what was currently out there.

I feel confident that this is the case. While there are sections that compare to some sections of other books, we feel we have the most comprehensive book on Faces out today.

With regards to Faces and AJAX, we devoted Chapter 11 to showing how to build JSF components with AJAX. Chapter 11 starts out by describing exactly what an AJAX transaction is and then how to incorporate this into custom JSF components. Chapter 10 incidentally introduces custom component development with a set of examples ranging from very simple to advanced ones with a SVG based chart component along with a Slider component which uses encapsulate JavaScript.

Here are a few more differentiators.

Our book covers JSF 1.2 in great depth.

Our book has "Expert Group Insights" that take you inside the minds of the designers of JSF to explain the rationale and design desicions behind the technology.

Our book has extensive coverage on Accessibility, Debugging, Testing, and I18N/L10N.

Our book has the benefit of being a second generation book, so we could cover the topic included in other books, and also add value by covering topics underserved in those books.
