MyFaces is the only one I use. There is also one called Open Faces I believe but it does't have near the components that MyFaces does. Those are both free. I haven't investigated any commercial libraries nor have I looked at libraries specific to Oracle, IBM, etc. They have their own component libraries that go along with their IDE's.

I like MyFaces as well. The only concern
I have is that the library is still in beta, therefore
not suited to be used in a production environment.
Any idea when they could be releasing?

cheers.

It's not in beta. 1.0.9 is an official release. Where did you read they are in beta? I am using the nightly builds because of some components I really like to use that haven't made it into the core yet like the new Tree component (tree2). But 1.0.9 is very stable.

... I found the confusing point: when you run
the WARs in Tomcat container for example, you get
in the header the title "....( 1.0.9 beta )"
And I double checked today it is written Beta.
Now did they forget to chenge the title?
I would really like to know.

cheers.

The current release is Apache MyFaces 1.0.9m9

That is on the download page. Looks to me like they are doing the Eclipse release thing. Milestones. While not technically beta, I'd guess they aren't technically final releases either. 1.1 should be the next non milestone stable final [give some other definative adjective here] release. So we were both right, or wrong.
