Primefaces taglib with JSF on Tomcat rendering empty pages

Lately I found out about this great taglib, Primefaces. It's absolutely perfect for what I need to do, but I'm being stuck on trying to make it do anything, even render the examples from their website.

So I've been following this tutorial I found (sadly, there aren't many of them on the subject of Primefaces): http://java.dzone.com/articles/primefaces-quickstart-tutorial Step by step, I made everything according to this tutorial, yet when I run it, it renders an empty page every time.

So I tried a simpler example from the official website: http://www.primefaces.org/gettingStarted.html

This (test.xhtml):

renders an empty page, while this:

renders only the "test test test test" text.

So I guess the problem must be in the tags, tomcat doesn't see them/doesn't know how to interprete them. But, according to the tutorial and the primefaces website all I need to do is to put the jars in WEB-INF/lib as I have done (by the way, I'm using Eclipse and the empty project I created was "Dynamic Web Project"). In my WEB-INF/lib I have the following jars:





If it's of any help, here's the content of the tomcat console:

What can be the case? Am I putting the jars in wrong place, is it a tomcat failure or maybe something else entirely?

Hi Natalia,

Your code seems to be fine. But I guess you have not configured the Faces servlet in the web.xml file. The tomcat console logs that you have specified does not seem to implement JSF jar. I suggest you configure the facesServlet and servlet mapping(url pattern) in the web.xml to get your code working

Hope this helps.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
