Hi Everyone,

I am new to JSF framework. I want to migrate one struts tiles bases app to JSF, so there must be something like template in JSF. I found JSFTemplate and Facelets options.

So could anybody please let me know that which one is better and stable option to pick, so that i can do the work easily.

I heard of that JSFTemplating is somewhat complex. Is it true?

I don't know about JSFTemplate. I do know that Facelets is a LOT more civilized than Tiles, however.

There are two other reasons why I like Facelets:

1. You get better error diagnostics on page problems than you do from straight JSF.

2. You can implement custom Facelets tags in a simpler way than you can do JSF tags (since the rendering isn't as abstract).
