The switch to v2 over v3.

We had to downgrade to Glassfish v2.1.1 at work and I've been busy making sure everything is running smoothly. Our biggest issue (since I don't want to go on a rant about glassfish I'll just leave it at this issue) was the Java Web Start snafu. I know that the real problem lies with the JRE but we can keeping making workarounds on our Apache server and making custom JNPL's.

At any rate our requirement of JSF 2.0 was easily assuaged and I'd like to share that with you.

You can get all the information to install Mojarra v2.0.2 on Glassfish v2.1.1 form here.

Just follow those and you'll be able to deploy JSF 2.0 pages in no time!

UPDATE ON 7/21/2010:
Just so you know we're sticking with Glassfish v2.1.1 but the Glassfish 3.0.1 server has the issue pretty much fixed for most cases.

The upshoot with v2 is that we can actual take our three glassfish servers and have them talk to each other to keep everyone up to date!  Our v3 system had a cron, shell script, and NFS mount to do that but the v2 way is much better.
