Iam very new to JSF.
Can any one help me to know what is JSF and where we use?
In which way it would be better than JSPs(with JSTL,Custom tags)?

It looks like your display name does not follow the Javaranch Naming policy on screen names. Basically your display name must consist of a first name and a last name(no initials for last name) separated by a space and must not be obviously fictitious.
Please change your display name using the My Profile link above.

For an explanation about why JSF is there, what it does and what it all can you the best read the JSF specification. This however expects that you've already a moderate grasp on the technologies which are used in JSF, which are at least HTTP, HTML, CSS, JS, XML, JSP and Servlet. (pick the 1st download link)
