Hi all,

I have worked with Java, JSP, Servlets in the past. I am starting to develop a feature that would make out J2EE application look more like a rich application rather than just some set of web-based tools. This means lesser reloads, auto-complete, editable tables and other such convenient features. The technology chosen is JSF with Ajax.

I have never worked with either of this before but have had some exposure to Ajax in the past few days. I think it is hard to use plain javascript for everything, it would be too time-consuming to write everything from scratch.

Can anyone guide me to resources on Ajax with JSF?
Which frameworks are available out there? How well-supported they are? How easy they are to pick up for someone new to both Ajax and JSF?

Advantages/disadvantages of using JSF with Ajax? Other technologies that are likely to do this better?

Thanks a lot!
PS - Does the Pro Ajax and Java Frameworks book have any of these answers?

Just a little rhetoric question: if you're not familiar with the technologies and are not sure how they can be used together, how did you come to the decision of using those specific technologies?

Oh I didn't. It was decided by the client and architect...
