I have a JSF page which is very lengthy. I have some links at the top of the page. If the user selects a link, the correspondinf content has to be displayed which is located on the same page. How can I implement this?

Similarly, How to implement "Go to Top" or "Go to Bottom" in the same page?

What JSF related tag should I use to achieve this? (as like <a> tag in html)

This can be achieved using Named Anchor to the hyperlink.

PS: If you want javascript, you can do

<a href="#" onClick="window.scrollTo(0,0); return false">Top</a>

and
<a href="#" onClick="document.getElementById('someId').scrollIntoView(); return false">scroll to someId</a>
