JSF2 Tutorials Videos : How to Create a Java Server Faces (JSF) Development Environment w Apache Tomcat + Suns JDK

Here is an awesome video from Cameron Mckenzie on JSF2 – How to Create a Java Server Faces (JSF) Development Environment w Apache Tomcat + Suns JDK.

Cameron Mckenzie is the author of JSF2 Made Easy
In his book – JSF Made Easy helps you learn quickly as it takes you through a number of fun and easy to understand examples that demonstrate both the power and simplicity of the JSF framework. The examples in the book are clear and concise, relatively small in size so they are easily reproduced, and they hit the core concepts hard without ever distracting you with unnecessary code, superfluous classes and peripheral concepts that detract from your learning.
