Combine JSF with other Frameworks?

Bill, I have a question here.
Since JSF concerns only presentation (correct me if I'm wrong ), does it make sense to combine Struts or some other framework with JSF, and using JSF for the UI part?

No Henry JSF is not only for presentation.

JSF is a component frame, working with the client interface as well.
Just like what JSTL + Struts + Tiles do.
But Struts is a MVC model, control level, while JSF provides more on component level.

Also go look at the 2 or 3 threads about Struts vs JSF
