What Are You Using JSF For: Commerical or Personal

I'm curious as to what everyone is using JSF for? Are these commercial apps? Are they internal apps for your employer? Are they personal apps for whatever reason?

I work on an app for where I work and am using JSF. Everything else I do with it is typically personal for learning purposes as well as for helping out people on javaranch with questions.

I am using JSF on an existing application for a big company. The existing application has several hundreds of JSP files filled with scriptlets and business logic, needless to say there's a lot to be done.

So right now we're formulating a new more sound programming model that will result in more maintable code, by using jsf for the presentation layer and business logic placed behind a web service layer.

I am developing a large commercial application as the primary product for a startup software company who will deliver the application as a hosted service to customers.

Needless to say with some of the bu... I mean quirky features in JSF developing a commercial grade application with it has it's challenges.

I am using it at work and personal interest. It is sort of commercial.

I am using JSF to redesign an existing large (thousand of pages) client-server commercial application for a big company. To speed and simplify the redesign process of the user interface, originally developed using a RAD tool (PowerBuilder) we have developed a large set of custom components (some new components and many extended ones) to emulate those used in the legacy product.

The financial company I work for just began the migration from Javascript/JSP to JSF. I, the summer intern, am for some reason leading that migration... and that is a scary concept.

How about option three....both. Learned to use it at work, then decided to use it to build a site of my own.

Used for a commercial insurance product which is already in production. More parallal non-JSF products (already in production) are destined to go JSF way.
