Hi Freinds,

I m very new to JSF, just I heard we can design interfaces in JSF as rich as SWING. Is it true. It will really amaging because swing is the best API to build most faboulous GUIs till today.

You're comparing apples to oranges. Or maybe kumquats. JSF is about building web applications (where the logic and interaction resides on the server). Swing is about building rich client applications. I'm sure you can get beautiful looking applications through a host of web application frameworks (including JSF), but the interaction model is different. Whether it works for you depends on what your application/user needs are.

Chet.

Except that any "rich effects" you want to do with JSF (or any web technologies) will be through some hard to manage technologies such as DHTML, flash, javascript, ajax, etc, while with Swing, the sky is the limit in what you can achieve.
