Hi,

How about JSF support in Stripes?

Does your book cover JSF usage in detail?

TIA

No, it doesn't cover JSF at all. Stripes -like JSF- is an MVC framework for web apps, so if you use one, you won't use the other. Also, Stripes is more request-processing oriented (like Struts), while JSF is more component-oriented (like Wicket).

That's a great analogy!

Hi,

Thanks for your info and comments. I might have asked something irrelevant about JSF and Stripes, since I'm new to JSF and zero in Stripes.

Anyway, you meant to say that both frameworks never co-exist?

No. JSF and Stripes are architecturally quite different. That's not to say you couldn't run both in the same web app. But you would not, for example, have a JSF view POST to a Stripes ActionBean. It just wouldn't work without some custom wiring and I can't imagine it being worth the trouble to get it to work in the first place.

Hi Gregg:

Thanks for your info.

Just now I've gone through your weblog Stripes and JSF. It looks interesting...

Hi Mourouganandame,

Indeed, you wouldn't use JSF and Stripes together. At our workplace, we were using JSF and things were not going well. We dumped JSF and switched to Stripes, and were able to get things done much more easily, with less code, and much more enjoyment!

Hi Frederic,

Thanks for your response and info.

It looks interesting the information you and other 'Stripeins' are shared... Let me give a try and see the difference. We are planning for a new web project soon. In that case, if something goes well, I'll surely recommend Stripes for the development.

Thanks a lot.
