Harness the power of JavaServer Faces to create your own server-side user interfaces for the Web
This innovative book arms you with the tools to utilize JavaServer Faces (JSF), a new standard that will make building user interfaces for J2EE™ applications a lot easier. The authors begin by painting the architectural big picture–covering everything from the Patterns that are used in the implementation to the typical JSF Request/Response lifecycle. Next, you'll learn how to use JSF in the real world by uncovering the various pieces of the JSF component model, such as UI components, events and validation. The authors then explain how to apply JSF, including how to integrate JSF user interfaces with the Business Tier and how to render your own user interface components. By following this approach, you'll be able to confidently create and validate your own custom applications that meet the needs of your company.
Whether working in J2EE or J2SE™, this book will show you how to:
Use UI Components to build your user interface
Ensure that the data you store meets the business rules for your application
Integrate JSF with JSPs through the custom Tag feature in JSP implementations
Build JSF applications that interact with either EJBs or POJOs
Validate a new component and queue events to invoke custom application logic

Jonathan has also co-authored two well-regarded books on Java web frameworks: Jakarta Pitfalls (978-0-471-44915-7, 2004, Wiley), and Mastering JavaServer Faces (978-0-471-46207-1, 2005, Wiley), and he is an occasional speaker at user group meetings and industry events.
Comments about oreilly Mastering JavaServerTM Faces:
I needed to get up to speed quickly not only on the JSF framework itself, but an older version of it. It was well written and easy to follow the concepts and the code examples. One major drawback, is that the book itself originally came with a CD with full code examples that are referenced frequently within the book. I was not able to find anything online that would allow me to access those examples.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
