By comparing it Struts , Spring MVC and even JSP & servlets directly seem easier to use ?
Regarding jobs .. very very few require knowledge of JSF (at least where I live) so this reminds me a bit about EJB2.0 a technology which though standard got used less due to it;s complexity and developing a JSF component by myself seems to be even harder to achieve (I did develop some JSP tags to practice for SCWCD).
But Sun continues to push JSF as a standard and passing the (new)SCEA architect exam requires you to know JSF so I am interested.
What are the benefits ? (besides standard technology /passing certification)
