Should I consider JSF for high user and transaction base application?
posted 4 years ago
I am big fan of JSF and have worked in the past. I just love them. I simply love Primefaces with Mojarra or myfaces implementation.
Now, we have a new requirement to build a fresh web based application for high user and transaction base application. Peak time or concurrent users can be 1500.
We will be using Websphere 7.5 or above.
Well it all sounds exciting but this new requirement makes me to think for some time. The end user should like application performance as well. We have certain NFR to meet.
Unfortunately, I never got a chance to use JSF with high user based application. In the past I have used it for a max of 500 users.
Now my question is will JSF fit here?
It might sound vague to answer as performance of the application is not determined by one framework, a host of other factors play a crucial role too. I dont want to get into a situation where in after the whole application is built, we find JSF as the bottleneck.
Any members have used JSF for such high user base? How were the results? Any inputs based on your practical experience with high user base application will be greatly useful.
