I am looking at some tools for JSF development. After hearing about Sun's Java Studio Creator, I downloaded and gave it a test spin.

It looks like it is generating lot of IDE specific crap beneath the design form. Very similar to Netbeans Matisse GUI builder.

Is there any other good tools for JSF development? Thanks in advance.

I am using IBM RSA.

The fact of the matter is that these tools do generate a lot beneath the stuff and you have to get your hands dirty in the end no matter what the tool.

Look at them as catalyst which speed you developement. They do not automate developement.

Here's a link which can guide you through the best tool

Hope that helps!!

How can I forget to mention about Eclipse when ppl talk about JAVA Developement and FREE.

This is just my thinking, If I have to choose one tool I choose the tool which have more wizards to create different things (e.g. JSF JSP, JAVA, XML) and thats why I like Eclipse.

I am using IBM RAD which is also nice tool to develop JSF but yes It does create few classes (I think only one) per JSP and one Entry for those each classes in faces-config.xml. but I ignore them and create my own classes.

Enjoy,
