Dear Team,

I am working on assignment since last 3 months.
I have created all artifacts required for assignment submission.

I have mentioned JSP/Servlet for presentation tier and created all artifacts based on JSP/Servlet selection.

Yesterday I was discussed my assignment with friend and he told , you must use JSF because its part of J2EE tech stack otherwise oracle will fail you.

I would like to know - is is mandatory to use JSF over JSP/Servlet ?

Regards,

Hi Patel,

I think your friend's advice is not correct that not using JSF will get you fail. JSP/Servlet are also part of J2EE. In fact, JSP/Servlet can give more control on the solution being designed.
Go for it without fear. Don't change your design.

Dear Ankit ,

Thank you very much for your prompt replay.

I was too much worried.

I am working on Quick Computer assignment and completed everything.

I am planning to submit assignment by end of this month.

Regards,
Ashish Patel

Exams often have silly requirements, and in fact often depend as much on what you don't know as what you do know. So the only real answer to that question is to check and see what the exam itself demands.

In the Real World, some people like JSF and some do not. Some of our most venerable Ranchers are very much in the servlet-and-jsp camp. On the other hand, I find it very useful. So much that I've hosted the JSF forum here on the Ranch for quite a long time now.

I'm sure at least one/some of the exams will specifically test you on JSF, simply because JSF is part of the JEE standard. But so are JSPs and servlets. So ultimately you need to be comfortable with both paradigms.

Hi,

I find myself with the same decisiĆ³n; currently i'm developing a different assignment and I'm thinking in another possible solution without JSF or JSP.

I have a NFR which says that providing a strong visual feedback to end users is a great priority. And this application involves a kind of editor where users may be able to add components from a custom palette in a 2D or 3D environment.

So I'm thinking in develop the presentation layer using Angular 2 and REST services layer. I found several JS libraries which can accomodate this presentation requirements. Developing this applicacion on JSF could be possible but time consuming and using  JSP will require JS either to implement any dinamic part.

Do you think that this can be a valid solution?

Regards,
