Facelets is a view management framework targeting HTML displays. RichFaces is a set of JSF tags that extends and enhances the core JSF tagset.

My primary use for Facelets is because it allows me to build tiled displays without going into screaming fits like I do when I try using the old Apache Tiles, and because it produces more usefule error displays when a page request fails.

RichFaces provides me with enhanced data and input displays and a dead-simple easy to use AJAX support system.

So I use them in combination on almost every page of my JSF webapps.
