There has been arguement in the past that html based framework like Tapestry and better than java based frameworks like JSF. Chris; what is your take on this, especially since html based frameworks are getting more popular among developers.

If what you mean by Html based framework with a mention of Tapestry means that you can build your UI using old fashioned HTML and then supply special attributes of the HTML tags, then I wouldn't really toss JSF out of this camp.

Like Tapestry, JSF can also be used in a similar manner to Tapestry where you simply code in HTML (or any markup) and then provide additional tags (jwcid) for tieing into the framework specific stuff. This is possible with Facelets which is an OS alternative JSF view technology (it can use: "jsfc" like "jwcid"). In this manner Facelets can operate independent of JSP entirely.

I still don't like classifying Tapestry as an HTML based framework - because you're still relying on Java for the infrastructure and coding in Java to a certain extent. Just like faces..
