Hi.
I have basic knowledge in JSF and as I noted, JSF is only useful in web forms (text fields, textarea, submit button) ....
Please, correct me if I'm wrong .
Can we develope complex web applications like web forums (or even email applications) using JSF ?
Thanks.

You can do anything any of the other frameworks do which is to say anything that J2EE will do.

But it seems to me that the sole use of JSF is just to create HTML forms and some beans.
Sorry, I'm not an expert, so please be patient and thanks for feedback.

It also has navigation via the faces-config.xml. Read through my JSF tutorial linked to at the top of this forum and you'll see what I mean.

I agree with Gregg, although there may be times when you might want to rely on a third party (like Spring or an EJB, etc.) to do some things that JDF doesn't directly support.
