Hi Tim,

The java.lang.RuntimeException: FacesContext not found is a classic
JSF exception when one doesn't pass a request through the FacesServlet
servlet. It does depend on how you configure the servlet, but it's
mostly used in /faces/* configuration. Run it again with
/faces/index.jsp not /index.jsp and it will go away. Nothing to do
with Eclipse, Geronimo or GEP themselves.

Patience?! You must be kidding. I'll do it with a great pleasure just
to assure I'm right and there is an issue :P
