I recently had the chance to work on a JSF application that used http://www.sun.com/web/ui as the namespace and all components started with the tag <ui:...> like <ui:button>. I do not seem to find it being used in JSF examples on the net and JSF books. So can anyone tell me what exactly is this?

Welcome to the JavaRanch!

"ui" usually is used with Facelets, which isn't JSF, but works with JSF in several useful ways. My favorite reasons for incorporating facelets include better error reporting and support for tiles that isn't as annoying as the traditional tiles system that came originally from Struts.

However, "ui:button" isn't a Facelets tag and I don't know what the www.sun.com/web/ui namespace is supposed to represent. A quick google search gave com.sun.webui, but that's not the same.

Oops, I have here an entire application that uses <ui:button>, <ui:staticText> among others and ALL of them are <ui:something> components. One information that might help is that this was developed using Sun Studio Creator.

It's from Woodstock, a rich-UI component library which ships with Netbeans and Studio Creator along with a drag'n'drop thing.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
