JSF frm Javaworld
""

In my opinion, it also seems as if Sun was trying so hard to catch up with (and be like) Microsoft�s ASP.NET framework that they neglected some of the excellent architectural pieces that were already present in the J2EE camp. Does anyone see a pattern here (JSP and ASP, EJB and MTS)? Many JSF proponents argue that the internal implementations are different. To them I say �think Windows and Mac�. Worst of all, in the process, JSF also inherited a limitation from ASP.NET; a weak controller model

It does not really matter , what the author says inthe above article..
We have to learn JSF...

The author makes some weak points as to why he thinks Sun missed on JSF. A weak controller model? He blames the fact that he can't extend JSF's controller and add security to it. Umm, use a Filter. Personally, I would never put security logic in my controller. I always use a Filter for this.

As far as the Validation framework...Sun left client side validation out of it's implementation on purpose. Sun truly expects that no one will use the Sun Implementation of JSF. Vendors are more than welcome to provide their own client side validation with their implementation. I believe this is what Sun wanted.

Yes, JSF has it's problems just like everything else. Hopefully future complaints will actually be note worthy. This article was not. I wonder if the guy has even done any coding with JSF beyong a single page.
