I read on theServerSide.com about Java Server Faces whose public draft is under review.
Now are we going to have to decide whether to use JSTL(Tags) or JSF(GUI Components) for web application development?
Why is there not one solution for a problem. Looks like tech leads at Sun are not talking to each other when coming up with new buzz words!
I might be ignorant in my comment ... can someone throw some light on this.

No, they're not alternatives; they complement one another. JavaServer Faces will work with pages that use JSTL, and it will, itself, use the JSTL expression language.

I think you're misunderstanding the intent of JavaServer Faces (or perhaps of JSTL). There's little overlap between the two; they'll work very nicely together.

Thanks Shawn. i really misunderstood.
See http://www.jcp.org/jsr/detail/127.jsp for details.
Or as a alternative how it may look/feel, refer to :
http://wings.mercatis.de which has a wingS implementation for gui components.
