Hi Michael.
I have been reading your weblog: Are Rails and Grails Scalable?.
How Seam beats Grails ?
I got to feel : JSF == poor performance , since JSF components are created on the server, their state should be saved some where (client or server).
Thanks for your time.

JSF is certainly slower than Struts -- but I do not think the overhead JSF adds is that important in the grand scheme of things. With a dual core machine, I can easily drive a JSF+Seam+EJB3+DB application to more than 200 transactions per second -- that is much faster than most developers ever need. In the real world, the performance bottleneck is probably from other layers of the app.

Re Grails: I think you do pay a price in performance for using those cute "dynamic languages" BTW, Seam 1.3 will provide Groovy integration as well. So, you can much of the same things as Grails in Seam!

But Groovy code is byte code after all, right ?
