The part referencing your classes to get data is encapsulated in Expression Language syntax.
ie all of those #{expr} expressions.

For instance one of them: "#{resourceReceive.receive_switch_file_status_label}"
Translates roughly into java as <%= resourceReceive.getReceive_switch_file_status_label() %>

However the code you have posted here also includes some non-JSF tags - the "bbr" tags.
They could also be accessing data behind the scenes.
Is that a custom taglib or a library you are using?

Data access is done using value binding to the components. JSF has pretty strong separation of roles in MVC, and the model is referenced by "#{bean.property}". If you look at the tags, you'll see this quite clearly, and there are three references here:

resourceReceive - a bundle that contains localized texts for the UI
templatesResources - another bundle that is never used
receiveSwitchStatus - seems to be a data source

So, in this particular file, there is only one data source (the others are bundles for texts), and that's receiveSwitchStatus, which has a bunch of properties, e.g. switchEntityName. The way JSF resolves this in that it calls the method getSwitchEntityName (note the capital "S") to retrieve data from whatever receiveSwitchStatus actually is; similarly to assign a value to this, it calls the method setSwitchEntityName. Since there is no definition in the file to indicate what receiveSwitchStatus is, it's clearly defined in the faces-config.xml file in the project, as a "Managed bean". If you look in this file (found in the WEB-INF directory), you'll see something like:
       <managed-bean>
            <managed-bean-name>receiveSwitchStatus </managed-bean-name>
            <managed-bean-class>com.foo.jsf.receiveSwitchStatus </managed-bean-class>
            <managed-bean-scope>request</managed-bean-scope>
      </managed-bean>
This is fairly clear: it gives the name, the actual Java class and the scope, i.e. the visibility of the bean.

The bean itself can be anything, retrieving data from any data source - a database, a file, a web-service, etc.

One other comment: the tag <bbr:entityTable> looks like it generates a table of data. In JSF, this will be generated by iterating over a datacollection returned by the bean. For an explanation on how it does this, have a look at documentation for UIData.
