Anybody using JSF actively for their projects?. I would like to get their feedback on their experiences. My concerns/questions are:
1) What tools/IDE to use.
2) Seems like a lot of abstraction for a simple request-response cycle.
Is JSF fast?
3) What about DHTML/Javascript support. All major browsers
support a fairly sophisticated DHTML DOM. So to justify writing a pure
JSF app with no client side interactivity (using Javascript) is going to
be difficult to swallow for users accustomed to snappy Win32 apps.
4) Does JSF speed up developing web pages.

Moving this to the Struts and other frameworks forum where frameworks such as JSF are discussed.

Dan,
There are several GUI tools coming out for JavaServer Faces. I created the first tool available: Faces Console.
http://www.jamesholmes.com/JavaServerFaces/
Faces Console is meant to be a simple tool to ease the management of the JSF XML config file. Many of the other tools go much further.
You can take a look at my JavaServer Faces Resources page for links to other information you're looking for.
Hope that helps,
James
