Hello guys,

I am finding the error "Cannot find FacesContext" while running my JSF webapp. I googled it and found that in most cases the error is regarding web.xml, right? Well I'm posting this because I think that is not my problem.

I start to prepare an application.. and I fix its web.xml and faces-config.xml. I add the necessary libs. Then, I write an index.jsp with only HTML contento on it. It runs ok.
But then if I change this jsp to one that has calls to JSF tags and it gives me the Cannot Find FacesContext error.

Will anyone help? Below go my files:



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app version="2.4" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/web-app_2_4.xsd">
        <servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>
        <servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>



<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<!DOCTYPE faces-config PUBLIC
  "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD JavaServer Faces Config 1.1//EN"
<!-- =========== FULL CONFIGURATION FILE ================================== -->

The simple fact of putting a "<%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core" prefix="f" %>" line in the index.jsp causes the error.
Is it the right line to include? Is the http address correct?

Oh. And I have the following libraries added:
- commons-beanutils.jar
- commons-collections.jar
- commons-digester.jar
- commons-logging.jar
- jsf-api.jar
- jsf-impl.jar
- jstl.jar

Is there something wrong? hehehe
