Subject RE: Is It Possible to Code Using Struts and JSF at the Same Time?
Date Fri, 01 Apr 2005 18:53:54 GMT

Thank you for the response and advice. I will take this into consideration,
but I have a difficult time accepting that the future is JSF. Despite it's
acceptance as a standard, I don't feel any compelling reason to ever use JSF
over Struts unless JSF becomes a huge marketing success.

What should a Struts developer make out of JSF?

No.  My advice is to plan on using JSF components for the UI part. 
That can be an orthogonal choice from what you use as your MVC
controller framework (Struts, Shale, ...).

Also, that advice was stated as being for *new* projects.  If you're
using the HTML tags now, there's nothing wrong with continuing to use
them until you're ready to migrate that app to JSF components instead.
