I'm very new to JSF and would like to ask fellow ranchers here (including our guest authors) what they think about the current implementations available in the market.

Do you also have an idea on what percentage of JSF developers are using Studio Creator? Are there other tools which are just as good as Studio Creator when it comes to JSF?

Many thanks.

SCJP 1.2 (89%), SCWCD 1.3 (94%), IBM 486 (90%), SCJA Beta (96%), SCEA (91% / 77%), SCEA 5 P1 (77%), SCBCD 5 (85%)

I have worked with Sun's implementation and myFaces. Both were fine to me. ADF, which is now under Apache I guess, has quite rich features comparatively.

About JSF IDE there must be a few plugins available for eclipse. Oracle JDeveloper also good for JSF, may be just for JSF.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
