For developing the Struts framework, we has the EasyStruts, StrutsConsole, and StrutsBox to help.

For JSP debugging, we have the NitroX, Lomboz, etc.

Is there a tool for helping JSF development?

I'll second the recomendation for Java Studio Creator!

I'd also recomend that you pick up the Java Studio Creator Field Guide (a Sun book I think). With it, and Creator, you will find a very short learning curve! In fact, I bet you will be amazed at what you can do with it within 4-5 days.

Is the Java Studio Creator Field Guide available in bookstores?

Do you mean with the help of the Java Studio Creator and this book "Java Studio Creator Field Guide" we are able to learn JSF in 4 or 5 days?

I got mine from an on-line reseller. You might want to go to pricescan.com and find the best price that way.

As far as learning JSF in 4-5 days, no, it won't do that, but it will hide the details from you where you can start to be productive in that time.

Just imagine drag and drop JSP hwere you don't have to hand code the tags...that's what Java Studio Creator (and others like it) can give you.

The Field Guide just shortens the learning curve of the tool itself. Now, there will be times when you will need to dig under the covers of what the tool generates if you need to do something like conncecting JSF with another framework (Spring for example), but to do simple things (and that includes database access) you won't need to know a lot about JSF, just know how it works overall...not all of the details behind what it is doing.

Oracle JDeveloper 10.1.3 gives you a visual editor for JSF.
See:

The url suggested at http://www.jamesholmes.com/JavaServerFaces/#software-gui is out of date.

IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer V5.1.2 provided a fairly complete implementation of JSF, and was replaced at the end of last year with IBM Rational Application Developer V6.0 (RAD6).

With RAD6 you can drag-and-drop components, edit backing code directly and test your code immediately with a full version of WebSphere Application Server running under RAD6. All the faces-config.xml is edited for you under the covers. You rarely if ever have to mess with configuration XML at all.

Kito Mann's book shows the various IDE alternatives in a fairly even-handed way.
