any suggestions please
I just tomahawk before moving to richfaces. From what I recall it was quite simple.
2) Put the tomahawk jars in your WEB-INF/lib. At the time we used myfaces as jsf impl. I don't know if that actually matters. If so you have to exchange the jsf-libs in jboss/tomcat(?) as well. I think this is discouraged by Seam staff.
3) Define tomahawk namespace in your xhtml and you should be able to add your t:component.
