Our client needs some specific functionalities like resizable columns and drag and drop of fields et crelated functionality. Someone suggested JSF would make it easier for us.

I wanted to check if anyone had used JSF and has the same opinion.

Please let us know.

Regards,
Tina

We use it for drag and drop columns and have no problem with it. We have moved all legacy Struts code over to JSF because it provide us with so much more.

Thanks Jeremy for the reply.

Are you guys actually providing a drag and drop of html columns?
Like I can drag the first column and drop it after 3rd.. something like that using JSF?

As we were also onto it, we felt AJAX may be of some help in this regard. But mainly this will be an HTML and Javascript related task.

Please let us know if you are already doing it and if you can share some ideas.

Thanks in advance

There's nothing that JSF (the specification) provides that is going to solve the types of problems you are faced with. However, finding an implementation of JSF that provides components with the functionallity you need is the key. That may help clarify your criteria a bit. Am I correct?

Then the question may be -- does anyone know of a JSF implementation that provides a table component with draggable columns? Have you used this feature? How well did it work? How hard was it to code? Did you provide any custom behavior or extend it in any way?

Thank you all for your replies.

Will there be any such implementations in JSF? Any particular place I can look?

How easy/difficult it will be for us to learn JSF and develop these components? We do not know it in team.

Regards,
Tina
