Has anyone had experience plugging 3rd party JSF components into RAD6? IBM's component set is a bit light and I'd rather not build my own.

Yes at my previous project, we tried to do include some of the components from Apache's "MyFaces" with the already existing components from IBM, then you are asking for lot of unwarranted issues...

It's not really worth because of some of the JAR incompatibilities that Myfaces needs with respect to the WebSphere Server Run time environment(assuming you are planning to run on WAS ).

I would suggest *not* to go with this path.

But rather you might want to wait a little bit for RAD 7 which is going to be released soon. It should be having most of the components and the good thing is they would be AJAX enabled.(read somewhere in the IBM's websphere forums) I hope it's really worth the wait for RAD 7.

Thanks,
