Hi All,
To my customer I proposed JSF 2.0 and lately I realized that customer has WAS 6.1 and they have no plans to upgrade to 7.x in near future. JSF2.0 requires Servlet Spec 2.5 where as WAS6.1 supports servlet spec 2.4. I am looking for you suggestions on

1. Has anyone tried running JSF2.0 on WAS 6.1. Is it working for you? I am trying to deploy a sample application, but facing problem and I don't have much time to experiment also :-(
2. Is it a good idea to run JSF2.0 on WAS 6.1? Any known issues?

ps: I tried steps given in the forum but no luck. http://www.coderanch.com/t/486721/JSF/java/JSF-websphere

Thanks,

Do you have to run on WAS? If it is just for demonstration purpose, tomcat should be good enough.

Well, in that case do you want to elaborate what you meant by "no luck"?

Thanks for your reply. This was a side question and I will get back to the forum after few attempts by me to resolve exceptions. The most important is I am looking for people experience on below

Well, practically it's not possible since the issue is with implementation of specs version, not just some dependencies that you can hack through class loader. Though one can say that anything is doable technically, but the cost of doing that is much more than the cost of refactoring your app to the supported version of JSF or trying to convince your client to upgrade WAS and/or using an open source JEE container.
