Excellent introduction (and more) to JavaServer Faces

This book provides an excellent introduction to JavaServer Faces. Hans was (and still is) one of the leading contributors to the JSF specification. If you've never seen or learned a thing about this new technology, this book will certainly get you started on the right path, with good examples of the "right" way to build pages in JSF. I would recommend (and have recommended) this book to those approaching this technology for the first time.
But even for those who have already been introduced to JSF, this book still offers a lot. Chapters on developing custom Renderers, custom Components, and even custom presentation layers (ViewHandlers in JSF-speak) are excellent, as are sections on integrating with Struts, debugging, internationalization, etc.
In short, highly recommended.

No cd or downloadable code for exercises

Let me quote the Wrox website: "The exercise answers to this and several other books are not amongst the files we've been able to recover from the old Wrox servers, yet. We're still trying to find them, or to recover them from some other source so we can repost them."It is two months later and there is still no code for the exercises at the end of the chapters. The sample code is still available, however.

Need solutions ? Wan't to avoid mis-developpement

I found this book very usefull. Why ?"Good judgement comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgement !"In the J2EE world, you don't have enough time to make enough "bad judgments" to avoid all big mistakes in your current project.This book then is very usefull : - With a very clear presentation you 'll find usefull solutions to common or less common prossible problems.- Each problem is explained and the solution is always easy to apply and understand.- Please not that you have to be familiar with UML.
I won't recommend this book to new developpers in the java worldas you still need some developpement background and practice.
For foreign readers, the english used here is not of an high technical level
Thanks for this book

Look No Further!

I wanted a book that would cover everything I needed to know to pass the 310-035 exam. I just took the exam and passed it with flying colors and this book helped a whole lot! Not only is the book full with everything you need, it is an easy book to read. Kathy Sierra is whitty and made the topic seem like fun.
