This is going to sound like a silly question....AND...
With JSF ui components is it possible to render in something other than HTML? Specifically, I am thinking WML.
Related to that, can the framework be used to provide Web Services?
Thanks,
Sharon

I do think so.
Just like what XSL does, depending on the incoming request, corresponding results is sent back to the client. I think the UI does not only means the GUI in the browser, or HTML stuffs, in fact, anything that related to the component level, maybe specific to presentation level can be generated from JSF.
But, we may need to put extra effort on it.
Such as those custom tags.
Nick.

Hi Sharon,
Yes all that is needed is a different renderer. No wml renderers are included in the ri but I expect there to be many from third parties.
