How to download

Use the links below to download a distribution of Apache MyFaces from one of our mirrors. It is good practice to verify the integrity of the distribution files.

Apache MyFaces is distributed as a zip archive (for Windows) and as a tar.gz archive (for UNIX). The contents are the same. Please note that the tar.gz archives contain file names longer than 100 characters and have been created using GNU tar extensions. Thus they must be untarred with a GNU compatible version of tar.

Verify releases

It is essential that you verify the integrity of the downloaded files using the PGP and MD5 signatures. MD5 verification ensures the file was not corrupted during the download process. PGP verification ensures that the file came from a certain person.

The PGP signatures can be verified using PGP or GPG . First download the Apache MyFaces KEYS as well as the asc signature file for the particular distribution. It is important that you get these files from the ultimate trusted source - the main ASF distribution site, rather than from a mirror. Then verify the signatures using ...

                % pgpk -a KEYS
                % pgpv myfaces-X.Y.tgz.asc


                % pgp -ka KEYS
                % pgp myfaces-X.Y.tgz.asc


                % gpg --import KEYS
                % gpg --verify myfaces-X.Y.tgz.asc

To verify the MD5 signature on the files, you need to use a program called md5 or md5sum, which is included in many unix distributions. It is also available as part of GNU Textutils . Windows users can get binary md5 programs from here , here , or here .

We strongly recommend you verify your downloads with both PGP and MD5.
