The Official Tomahawk Site
The official site for the Tomahawk library can be found at http://myfaces.apache.org/tomahawk/index.html.
This page is a community-maintained page that contains additional information and errata (corrections) for information on the above site.
Configuring your JSP or JSPX pages to use Tomahawk
Instructions on how to use Tomahawk components in your application can be found at the official site: http://myfaces.apache.org/tomahawk/. There is further information on the MyFaces_1.1.0_Tomahawk_Components page.
Tomahawk can be used with the non-standard (but very nice) Facelets project (an alternative to JSP or JSPX for your pages). You can find more information on the Use Facelets with MyFaces and Use_Facelets_with_Tomahawk pages.
validateCreditCard: validate that a String is a valid credit card number
validateISBN: validate that a String is a valid ISBN number
validateRegExpr: general validator that checks compliance with a regular expression
validateEmail: validate that a String is an email address
validateCompareTo: validate that the current component value compares to another component's value in a certain way. (validateEqual contains a subset of this component's functionality.)
Tomahawk offers an extended versions of the standard components, and a number of more advanced additional components. To see tomahawk examples in action, go to: http://www.irian.at/myfaces/home.jsf
Extended Version of Standard Components
All standard components have an equivalent version in Tomahawk. These extended versions feature additional attributes.
User-role_Awareness Render the component visible and/or enabled based on the user-roles of the current user.
DisplayValueOnly Toggle between output/input mode
forceId Do not let JSF generate an assembled id of the ids of the component and its parents, instead use the provided id.
ExtendedMessagesSupport Messages automatically replace the id of the message with the corresponding label or column header.
The following standard components have been additionally enhanced:
Advanced Additional Components
AliasBean: introduce variables in a limited scope inside a JSF page (also used to pass parameters to include files)
Document Tags: document, documentHead, documentBody

The sandbox is growing really fast and the list below is terribly outdated. You really need to download the nightly build to see all the exciting stuff it contains. Daily builds of sandbox examples can be found at: http://www.irian.at/myfaces.jsf (go to "MyFaces Sandbox Examples latest build")
The very early releases (pre 1.1.0) of the above components were called "myfaces-extensions", not Tomahawk.
