Webucator's JSF 2.0 course is a great foundation course for learning and implementing this technology.

The Webucator Spring MVC course is put together well, and taught me a lot of detail over the course of a week. I have not been able to learn this much information in a single week in a long time. The information and labs is well planned out and makes learning the content easy.
