JSF and Sharepoint?

This may be a strange question but has anyone had experience with incorporating a jsf application into sharepoint? Could this even be done?

I have been working on a jsf application and now the end user is saying that they want to put it on sharepoint and use their �process flow� I know nothing of sharepoint and couldn�t find much about combining the 2 technologies on the web. Would I be better off just re-doing everything in .Net or is this as easy as just dropping my app on the web and pointing sharepoint to it?

Well I thought Sharepoint was Microsoft's ESB product. ESB being an SOA type product for delivering messages. So no matter what something is written in, all can use the ESB Bus.

I'm assuming it's the Microsoft Office Sharepoint Services portal solution. Essentially, you develop portlets (WebParts in MOSS lingo) that can be dropped into the site. I'm not sure whether there's anything particularly clever that you would be able to do using JSF, but a WebPart can be set up to point at something that will return HTML. I'm guessing that should be more or less all that would be needed for getting your JSF component on there.

I thought at least some of SharePoint was ActiveX controls???

Which don't play nicely with my Linux Firefox browser.

I agree. Here's the link:
