Subject Re: [programmazione] Struts vs JSF (poll?)
Date Mon, 25 Aug 2008 13:06:49 GMT
keep in mind that JSF is a very powerful framework, but it has also some 
The biggest one is that to work correctly javascript must be enabled on the 
client browser.
So, as first, take care this is a very strict specific.
Where it is possible i like using JSF (sun), otherwise I go with struts.

Using NetBeans and the so called visual JSF (woodstock project) is not 
mandatory to develop a JSF app.
(That is : u can use eclipse :-))

In any case, I suggest to invest in "know how" about the framework u decide 
to deal with. Also if some tools can give the impression everything is 
simple to do, a deep knowledge of the choosen framework is always necessary.
