I recommend using Facelets to do your tiling with. Maybe it's just me, but I've always found the Tiles interface to be awkward and cumbersome.

MyFaces is a set of JSF tag collections plus a core JSF implementation. You can use the extended tags (Tomahawk, Trinidad, and so forth) either with the MyFaces core or the Sun JSF RI, since they're interchangeable.

RichFaces is a collection of extended tags from JBoss/Red Hat. It provides extensive AJAX support. RichFaces and Tomahawk can be used together, but RichFaces and Trinidad have had some compatibility problems.

I'm working on a major project that's currently using Sun RI for the core, Richfaces for AJAX, Tomahawk for various odds and ends, and Facelets for its tiling and improvements to JSF error reporting. Tomahawk is sort of fading out of the project, though. RichFaces can do most of the same things Tomahawk can, plus support AJAX.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
