Hi
Im developing on JSF2 , and it lacks fancy components, all it has is basic stuff,

as far as i know GWT got lots of fancy components...

My question is it possible to combine the JSF2 together with GWT, and does this combination is a good idea ?

The combination is possible, but some additional effort is necessary. Ask google for experiences... You should only choose this solution, if there is a real reason for it.
JSF has also many "fancy components", look at component libraries such as RichFaces, MyFaces, ICEFaces and so on! Only the implementation of the standard itself does not contain any "fancy components" :-)

By the way: GWT itself also contains only simple components. If you want to use some nice components, you have to use component libraries such as ExtGWT or SmartGWT.

Im developing on Google App Engine,

Thats the reason i cant use IceFaces (which i used for years, and its awesome) MyFaces is same as mojjara (only an apache implementation)

but GAE does not support ICEFaces not RichFaces , thats why im interested in GWT

Interesting... Why is it not supported? You have to add a JAR file the same way you have to add one for GWT. Can you please explain? Does it explicitly exclude some products / libraries?

If you use GWT, maybe you also are not able to use ExtGWT or SmartGWT?

MyFaces is same as mojjara (only an apache implementation)



I think, MyFaces is a project with a collection of sub-projects, including the JSF implementation, but also some other projects (e.g. for fancy components):
