Hi guys,

I have never used JSF so I was just wondering if it's an open source framework like Struts?

JSF is a specification. The implementation of JSF, such as MyFaces is open source.

SCJP 5.0, SCWCD 1.4, SCBCD 1.3, SCDJWS 1.4

JSF is actually now integrated into at least one open-source J2EE stack provider (JBoss).

Struts was never part of the J2EE or JEE standard like JSF is.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
