Hi Bill Dudney
I am currently into tapestry, And very impressed from its architecture. I was wondering if you could supply us - in the Web-Framework business, some words about JSF VS/AND Tapestry.
thanks

Hi,
Tapestry is one of those things on the huge list of stuff that I really want to mess with but I've not had time to yet. I'm an old NeXT guy and since Tapestry is loosely based on WebObjects I am partial to it even if I've not used it
That said I do try to follow Tapestry and I remember reading a thread where the author of Tapestry basically said there is no clean way to get the two to work together or to make Tapestry appear to be a JSF implementation. So I would not look to them to coexist peacefully any time soon.
As to the comparison of the two. I still go back to standard vs really cool. Even if Tapestry is the best framework, most j2ee customers (i.e. with $) will probably do JSF because it comes bundled with their app server. Which is a shame really because I think the variety of web frameworks is good.
We will have to wait and see. Regardless your knowledge of Tapestry will pay off in the long run. Its never a waste to learn something new!
