Of what i could read from the scarce information on the internet it is going to be RAD developpement with code clearly seperated from the page authors. Directly giving raise to the following questions:
Are Java Server Faces going to open up new possibilities? Is it going to be better then ASP.NET? Will it require completely new training?
Is it going to give you an advantage if you learn this technology today. Maybe in cooperation with an SCWCD 1.4?

JSF is now available from Sun for a few weeks. Expect the job openings requiring 5 years experience with the production release to start appearing soon

YASB (Yet Another Silver Bullet). I'm actually a big believer in RAD, expecially for prototyping. However, remember the old adage:


The first 90% of the work takes 90% of the time. The last 10% of the work also takes 90% of the time.


Few systems are a 100% perfect fit to a "one-size-fits-all" solution. The challenge is in bridging that small but critical gap. Which is why replacing software talent with untrained monkeys never works.
And, yes, I'm sure we'll shortly be seeing Help Wanted ads demanding "2-3 years JSF experience". Which, aside from the obvious chronological insanity, ingores the fact that the whole idea is that an unskilled person can create functionality via a simple drag'n drop interface.

Faces is going to be MEGA.
As someone who works full time with JSP servlet I know how cack it is for RAD compared to ASP.NET. What Faces is, is a copy of the event-handling asp.net framework. I.e. you drop widgets onto a canvas, and the IDE writes the 'plumbing' code and all you do is write your logic in the event handler for the widget.
In mid-June sun will release Sun Studio Creator which does the whole Faces RAD thing.
In my opinion Faces will replace 90% of all JSP/Servlet frameworks and become the de-facto standard. If you can get a preview of Sun Studio Creator I would start looking at it now, because experience with Faces/IDE later this year could get you some consulting.
good luck

I think sun should give all sun certified people a chance to get beta software as an appreciation for investing you future in the company.
I think microsoft does similar things with their MCPs.
