AJAX in JSF application

I have been using the ajax4jsf library found at ( on our JSF applications.

It appears to be a convenient way to ajaxify JSF applications quickly. However i have not used AJAX on other web frameworks. My question is how different is it from ajaxifying in other web frameworks (for e.g. when using Struts or for that matter simple JSP).

The ajax4jsf seems to dynamically update the JSF tree model rather than working with JSON or XML and the HTML DOM. Which is more efficient ?
