    OS: UBUNTU 14.04
    Eclipse : Luna Release (4.4.0)

    I am trying to create a JSF web application using Eclipse. I was going through a tutorials, where it showed to add some jar files under the WebContent>>WEB-INF folder. In the tutorial, some jar files were added in WEB-INF folder for JSF. The tutorial was created using Windows OS.

    Do we need really need to add the jar files to WEB-INF for JSF projects. If so where can I find the jar files in my Ubuntu. How to add jar files in Ubuntu for JSF application?

    What .jar files? Be specific. The Eclipse environment setup is essentially the same regardless the OS, so Yes, you should add the .jar files as instructed.

    Adding external Jar is not smart in case you want to change the project location in filesystem.

    The best way is to add the jar to build path so your project will compile if exported:

    1.Create a folder called lib in your project folder.

    2.copy to this folder all the jar files you need.

    3.Refresh your project in eclipse.

    4.Select all the jar files, then right click on one of them and select Build Path -> Add to Build Path
