>   developers to migrate the view tier of their applications from the
>   existing Struts tags, to pages that use corresponding JavaServer Faces
>   component tags, with no changes to the corresponding business 
> logic.  This goal has been substantially achieved for simple applications
>   so far; additional work will be necessary for more advanced apps.
>   As a proof of concept, the JavaServer Faces based version of the
>   canonical "struts-example" web application is included in the
>   distribution, so that you can see for yourself how little had to be
>   changed.
> * The integration library has been tested under Tomcat 4.1.18 and
>   the Java Web Services Developer Pack (version 1.0_01), although in
>   principle it should run on any Servlet 2.3/JSP 1.2 container.
>   (It will not run on Servlet 2.2/JSP 1.1 containers).
> * There is a known issue when trying to run JavaServer Faces EA3

>   (version 1.1).  Watch the JavaServer Faces web page (at the URL

> * The JavaServer Faces distribution is an EA release, not suitable 
> for  use in production environments.  In addition, the license terms 
>  under which it can be downloaded prohibit redistribution. 
>  Therefore,  you will need to download your own copy of JavaServer 
> Faces EA3 and  integrate it with the example application before it 
> can be deployed.
> * The integration library should also be considered to be of alpha
>   quality, not suitable for production use.  There are a set of known
>   issues and limitations at the bottom of the README.txt file. 
>  Please  file bugs against this package in the usual Bugzilla location:
> * For generic questions about JavaServer Faces (i.e. not related to this
