I'm presently digging through Ed Burns' "JSF 2.0 The Complete Reference" and I wondered where to post (presumed) errata to?
There's no info given in the book (nor on Ed's blog at java.net) in that regard (at least none obvious to me) - note that even the URL given in the book's "About the authors" section (http://purl.oclc.org/NET/edburns) doesn't work... :(

Is there any particular discussion forum for the book?
Or is this very forum here the correct location for questions or remarks?

Best,
MP

Addendum: http://purl.oclc.org/NET/edburns/ (with a trailing slash) works and sends you to Ed's web page (which contains, amongst others, a contact sheet).

added addendum regarding the author's URL
fixed some typos

I received the info by the author that this is the recommended way of posting errata indeed.
When clicking the "Get online content" on the same page, one gets directed to a page where errata are available (with some rather tedious check in between...).

I posted some corrections in a comment on the book's site jsfcompref.com. I got no response. Apparently there's no interest in collecting errata. It's amazing how many errors there are in this book.

Actually, I did not encounter so many errors in the book, but that might be due to my inexperience with JSF.
Yet if so, I'd guess it'd be even more important for the book's reader community (in particular me ;) ) to know about them.
