MyEclipse has full support for JSF. It has dragndrop-like thingy for building JSF templates. And you could call WYSIWYG its visual editor.

Just create a new Web Project and through the context menu add JSF support, all the minimal needed stuff will be added and visual workspace JSF features will become active.

We can drag-and-drop MyFace components ?

Thanks.

In the design view you can drag and drop any element from the faces toolbar panel to the code or visual editor.

As far as I know there is no myfaces toolbar support though, just pure JSF.

You can use Eclipse OEPE (Core eclipse with Weblogic plugin). It will support all kind of JSF versions (Sun, My faces, Trinidad).

JSF itself is designed as a JavaBean architecture, so properly-developed JSF tagsets are supposed to be able out of the box to be designed with DDD* interfaces. That includes MyFaces.

Actual decent DDD is harder to come by. Reportedly, NetBeans has a good one. I used Oracle's JDeveloper a couple of years back, but theirs was comparable to the old "web page designer" in Mozilla, which wasn't very sophisticated. I hear IBM's RAD supports DDD as well, but it does it by making the design dependent on IBM-proprietary runtime modules. Since I do open-source, I can't generally take advantage of that.

Another option is to use JBoss Tools or JBoss Developer Studio. You get excellent JSF support as well as RichFaces support
