Updated Wiki Articles

Many of the Liferay Faces wiki articles have been updated with instructions for deploying JSF portlets on various servers ( GlassFish, Jetty, JBoss AS, Resin, Tomcat, WebLogic, and WebSphere) as well as upgrading Mojarra and Weld.

New Demo: jsf2-spring-portlet

In order to test the Spring Framework, we developed a new jsf2-spring-portlet demo that shows how to use annotations like javax.inject.Injectjavax.inject.Named, and org.springframework.context.annotation.Scope("request").
