    How to configure RichFaces 4.0 using Facelets and JSF2.0 ?

    m s Newbie

      I am using a simple example program using RichFaces 4.0 and Facelets(.xhtml files) but unfortunately I am not able to configure the view handler for Richfaces 4.0.


      I have following libraries in my WEB-INF folder

      commons-beanutils-1.7.0.jar
      commons-collections-3.2.jar
      commons-digester-1.8.jar
      commons-logging-1.0.4.jar
      cssparser-0.9.5.jar
      guava-r08.jar
      jsf-api-2.0.4-b09.jar
      jsf-impl-2.0.4-b09.jar
      jstl-1.2.jar
      richfaces-components-api-4.0.0.20110209-M6.jar
      richfaces-components-ui-4.0.0.20110209-M6.jar
      richfaces-core-api-4.0.0.20110209-M6.jar
      richfaces-core-impl-4.0.0.20110209-M6.jar
      sac-1.3.jar

       

      my web.xml

         </rich:panel>

        </body>

      </html>

       

      What is happening is that as I do not have any view handler so when I run the application I am being prompted to download the file from the browser? If I include jsf-facelets.jar and configure it in the faces-config.xml then i get tag lib error while deploying. See below error for reference.
