Hi Folks,
I am going to start working on an application whic involves extensive use of GUI. For past 2 years i have been working on Thin Client(Browser) for user intraction with my system. Since my new application will have extensive use of GUI and have multiple clients, I would like to know if i should still user browser of switch to Swings. I was also considering JSF, though i have no working experience in JSF. I have spent some time working on Struts Framework.

Since i have not used Swings and JSF i am not able to appreciate the advantage of moving to Swing/ JSF . Can someone provide guidance , pros and cons of either using Thin CLient (Browser) or Rich Client (Swing/JSF).

Thnx in advance
