I keep reading that JSF was designed with tools in mind. If I'm not an Eclipse kind of guy, can I still develop JSF apps without too much trouble i.e. in just a text editor? I'm currently a Struts developer, but am looking to make the switch.

Thanks.

I'm glad you brought this up.

Although Faces development is supported in a number of IDEs, you can always simply build Faces apps with your favorite text editor.

Actually Chapter 2 describes how to get started from a very minimalist perspective.. Later in the book I provide a review of the various IDEs that provide visual dev support.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
