I have seen Gavin King posting on the forum on how to get Seam up and running on JBoss 4.0.5GA with JSF 1.2. Can the same steps be followed in my case?
You can use JSF 1.2 as long as you use Facelets instead of JSP. JSF 1.2 requires JSP 2.1. Upgrading JSP is much harder to do. For that you really need to look at JBoss AS 4.2.
The steps outlined by Gavin are basically what you need to do. Make sure you read the whole thread carefully. If I remember, there were one or two inaccuracies in the original post.
Today I was told that I could go for the JBoss AS 4.2.0GA release, so it's not a problem anymore. Now I've installed JBoss AS 4.2.0GA and JBoss Portal 2.6. I've tried to implement a portlet using the bundled JSF 1.2 RI, but I'm having problems when deploying the portlet. See this thread for more details:
