Best AJAXable component in JSF ???

Hi - I am trying to evaluate an AJAXable component for JSF.

I went through and found the differences between AJAXable components within JSF. While these explain the differences in feature wise, it does not explain which is the best one to use, atleast from maintainability perspective.

ICEFaces is good, but it extends every single component of JSF and I dont feel very good about that. Have anyone tried AJAX4JSF or RCFaces. There are some third party client side html toolkit also available like DOJO.

Please let me know your suggestions as which one is the best both feature wise and technology wise from ease of development and maintenance perspective.

You may be in the right track, but if you sit there, you will get run over !!

Ajax4JSF its easy to use and adds excellent ajax support for JSF. RichFaces has excellent components with ajax funcionality.
