I would like to know how things are going with JSF, I have been reading news about the JSF in the last few years . but actually there is nothing solid yet.. no final releases ...no implemntation that I know? what is going on behind the scenes? if anyone can post a brief history of the JSF ? how did it start? approach changes? milestones? what to expect in the near future?
thank you

Hi Karim,
Sun have a reference implementation of JSF which is included in the Web Services Developer Pack.
An open source JSF implementation is available and called 'myfaces' myfaces web page.
As for history, the JSF spec was developed by the JCP as JSR-127. For further info. you can check this out.
Regards,
Fintan

Here you can find a bunch of articles about JSF... I do believe u will get a lot from those articles... Meanwhile, those articles are useful for us to taste the JSF...

JSF has taken so long because its huge and there are a large number of people on the expert group. It takes a long time to herd 30 cats into the corral
It will almost certainly be done this year though.
