Hi Bill:
I am really excited to try this product.
Based on what I found on www.jsfcentral.com, the functionality of the current JSF version is limited compared to ASP.net.
My questions are:
a. What web controls are provided in JSF?
b. Can we add customized controls which may accept client-side events?
Is it difficult?
c. What is the life cycle of a JSF web form?
d. JSF basically provides "what you see is what you get" capability. Can we
associate it with an existing IDE, and then code, trace and even deploy a
web application?

Thanks for your time.
Dan

Hi Dan,
a) The list is too big to mention here but the spec has all the 'standard' ones
b) It is straightforward to build a new component, there is a whole chapter about this in the book. Basically in the 'most code' scenario you have to write the componet, the renderer and the JSP custom action. Often though you can get by with writing less.
c) Not sure what you mean by the question? A view lives either on the server or serialized into the page depending on some configuration settings. The lifetime is not specified in the spec so vendors are likely to come up with a range of possibilities of how to keep views around. The RI keeps the view in the session on the server side which will obviously go away with the session times out.
Hope this helps!
