Thanks Kevan - maybe this should be under a new subject...
I am really concerned about using JSF and want to avoid it. But it seems to be the recommended way to generate your HTML.
>From what I understand, there shouldn't be any problem just not to use JSF. Instead create dynamic markup mostly with Javasript and AJAX. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Betreff: Re: Why should I use Geronimo?
Geronimo is a lighweight, composable, Java EE-based application server. A full Java EE Geronimo application server contains multiple technologies (JPA, Servlet/JSP, JSF, JMS, etc.).

I think of the Play Framework as fundamentally a Web Framework (e.g. JSF, Grails, Spring MVC, etc.). You can run Play applications in standalone mode (I'm not sure if that's what Play calls it). You can also create a Play application, generate a .war file, and deploy the .war file on Geronimo.
Hope that helps.
