Many forums suggest removing of the IBM's JSF implementation jsf-api.jar and ws-jsf.jar when myfaces is to be used. I do not want to delete those jar files. As, on my production box other applications may be using those jars and my websphere admin wont permit to touch the server lib path.
Also I tried the PARENT_LAST option. But it did not work.
Please suggest the way how to override the server lib path with the Web App path.
You don't have to physically delete the jars from WebSphere, just ensure that MyFaces comes ahead of them on the application's CLASSPATH. Usually you can accomplish that by putting copies of the myfaces api and impl jars in your webapp's WEB-INF/libs directory.
I'd look at the MyFaces docs/wiki and do a little googling, however. In JBoss, there's some other conflicts that also have to be addressed, so you might also have to do something for WebSphere.
