JSF is custom tag library

JSF is custom tag library made by somebody.

The library has tags, which are for so commonly used component/validation/any presentation logic, that it became a framework as a whole.

Does it make any sense?
Please correct me.

Thanks.

I do not think this is a correct assumption somehow.

JSF uses custom tag libraries, but is not just a custom tag library.
JSF offers many features like

1] It has a powerful lifecycle mechanism.(6 phases)

2] One can build custom components straight out of the java code.
No need to use the "custom tag library" components.

3] Custom renderers..

etc...

I guess, JSF (tags) are nothing in itself untill we use them in JSP page. So they can't make any changes in life cycle of JSP page...

Right?

JSF doesn't need to work with JSPs. The component model works well with other template frameworks.

So, no, JSF is not at all "just a tag library".
