Last week we published a new tutorial out on OTN that takes you through the process of creating an Ajax enabled Web application using JSF with ADF Faces Rich Client.
It covers a lot. From creating layouts, to using advance input components to skining and drag and drop. It is a great first step to take if you are interested in understanding how the component nature of JSF can make Ajax-enabling applications much easier.
By the way, this tutorial is the base for the rich client hands-on lab that we'll be running at the Oracle Develop conference
If you still want to know the basics, but don't have time to run through the tutorial, then I'll be giving an overview session about the ADF Faces Rich Client components at OOW on Thu at 11:30am
