When you complete the steps for creating the JSF pages, the Application Navigator should look something like this:

Application Navigator

In the project, the folders and files that conform to the Java EE Web module directory structure are:

  • Web Content folder: Contains the .jsp files for the pages you created. Other files may include .html files and files that must be visible to the client browser (such as stylesheet files and images).
  • /WEB-INF/ folder: Contains the required Web Application Deployment Descriptor ( web.xml) and the JSF configuration file ( faces-config.xml).
  • web.xml file: The web application deployment descriptor for your application. This is an XML file describing the components that make up your application, along with any initialization parameters and container-managed security constraints that you want the server to enforce for you.
  • faces-config.xml file: Where you register the JSF application's configuration resources, such as validators, converters, managed beans, and navigation rules.

The JSF navigation diagram in faces-config.xml should look like similar to this, with the name of each page, and the navigation rules displayed:

Notice that the warning icons have disappeared and the page icons have changed, to indicate that the physical page files exist.

You can begin editing the pages in the JSP/HTML visual editor.
