I'm trying to create a simple JSF project using Indigo, JEE6, Java EE perspective and Tomcat7. I've run other Dynamic Web Projects (non-JSF) succesfully.

Here are the steps:
1) I click File:New:Dynamic Web project
2) On the next screen I enter a project name, check defualt location, Apache Tomcat 7.0,Dynamic web module version 3.0 and JavaServer Faces v2.0 Project for the configuration and click Next
3) Click Next again
4) Check Generate web.xml deployment descriptor and click Next
5) The next screen is the JSF Capabilities screen. I have two options: JSF 2.0 (Apache Myfaces) and JSF 2.0 (Mojarra). Clicking either one results in "Required class javax.faces.FactoryFinder does not exist in selected libraries" being displayed at the top of the window just below "JSF Capabilities" and I am not allowed to proceed any further. I have tried every conceivable combination of Jar files in multiple directories. The FactoryFinder class is included in many Jars, I've tried several. Curently, in the Apache2/lib folder I have the jsf-api-2.1.10.jar and the jsf-impl-2.1.10.jar amongst others like the myfaces-api-2.1.3.jar. I've tried others. I've tried removing some in the event there was maybe a conflict. I've tried adding jars to current projects in their WEB-INF/lib folders but nothing I do gets around the error message. I'm a newbie and have spent literally days on this and at this point would like nothing more than for someone to say "you idiot, you didn't include this or you forgot to set that". Please feel free and thanks for any help.

Normally, you'd be better off asking this question in the Eclipse web
tools forum. I really advise to ask there next time and, perhaps, even
this time.

A couple of years ago, feeling the same pain, I did some work on this
problem. I don't know if this will be helpful and I apologize if it is
not, but I can offer you the following links of notes I took. I decided
to use RichFaces as adequately discussed in the first article. I was
ultimately successful, but you might not want what I've done.

Best of luck.
