I want to take a step back since I am new to this framework. I have used a lot of other MVC frameworks. We also had an internal JSF prototype project which did not go well - probably the requirements were not scoped out or it was a new developer (don't want to go into details). Also, I do not want to start a war or insult anyone.

Just want to know from the experts -
- What are the advantages of JSF over other frameworks ?
- When to choose JSF?

From my experience you should only use JSF for relatively bigger projects.For small project JSF will be an overhead.

Most important thing is your dev team should know the basis of JSF framework.

Is it still true for the current version JSF 2.0 that it produces a lot of overhead? For JSF I must admit that I'm not an expert and can't fully judge this statement. But I've heard or read this over and over again for other parts of JEE 6 and I just can't understand what all those people are complaining about? What overhead? I mean, undoubtedly JEE or JSF may be a bit more complex. But just because it is more complex and requires some learning at the beginning this (in my opinion) doesn't mean it produces more overhead. The only overhead I see is when you are absolutely unfamiliar with all these technologies and have to start learning from scratch.
