Is it possible to join some RigidBody to another?

Not really at the moment. This would require some sort of "Weld" joint. I can look into adding it. I will put it on my list that seems to grow much quicker than shrink. :-)

But I can use RevoluteJoint to join just 2 objects and next join another object to one of previous object (joined)?

something like this:

FarseerPhysicsComponent._physicsSimulator.AddJoint(new RevoluteJoint(circleGlassBallEntitiesi.RigidBody, christmasTreeEntity.RigidBody, new Vector2(circleRadius,circleRadius)));

yes, but the revolute joint does not constrain rotation... the bodies will still rotate with respect to eachother.

So can you send me this sample demo:

That is just using the revolute joint. That is in one of my earlier releases, but it is for beta2.

I will be updating some of the ealier demos for xna 1.0 real soon (working on it now)

yes - I know. But it will give me idea how to use joins. Now I have problems with correct positions for joins (there is no doc ;( ).

For the revolute joint, the position is in world coordinates. Place the two bodies where you want, then create the joint using world coordinates for the position.
