This forum is now a read-only archive. All commenting, posting, registration services have been turned off. Those needing community support and/or wanting to ask questions should refer to the Tag/Forum map, and to http://spring.io/questions for a curated list of stackoverflow tags that Pivotal engineers, and the community, monitor.
It shouldn't make a difference. The mapping is just for the FacesServlet to know which requests it needs to process. You can map it to whatever you want, but these two are the most common. Another common one I've seen used before is /jsf/*.
