"Cheat Sheets" basically are sort of meta-wizards. They allow you to provide checklists of things to do for complex development tasks, although they can also initiate actions in their own right.

I've been working on one for my JSF needs, as a matter of fact, since a common process goes like this:

1. Create backing bean with properies
2. Add to faces-config
3. Bind to persistence service (and/or business services)

In extreme cases:

4. Add object to persistency model
5. Construct basic interface and implementation for DAO service classes
6. Add DAO to Spring configuration

Since anything over 2 steps long I usually forget a step, cheat sheets can be handy. Especially for things I don't do everyday.

No. Cheat sheets are designed to help the developer. They're not a runtime feature.
