I have very little experience with JSF as I have only developed 'Hello Word' kind of programmes. I don't understand when one should use JSF in application? When can we say that this is the best application to use JSF and JSP/JSTL/EL/Other Taglibs ain't sufficient?

The reason why I am asking is, I have heard more negative than positive about JSF.

To the point: use it if you want a component based MVC framework wherein you just attach inputs, outputs and actions to simple javabeans.

Request Driven MVC and Component based MVC - This are just two different approaches to implement MVC or one is better than other in some way?

There is essentially no "OR" in this case. You can use them both.

If you want an "OR", then look for two request driven MVC frameworks or two component based MVC frameworks.
