I came across the following article
http://www.roseindia.net/jsf/actionListener.shtml Where it showing swing component ,JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Hi"), being rendered using JSF.
Is it possible to use Swing component with JSF ? If this is true, I guess we can have a lot more flexible components and rendered using JSF.
What is the down side of this ? can anybody throw some light?
You shouldn't use swing components for web based applications. Swing is meant for developing window based(thik) client applications. Here in this article, JOptionPane is used just to demonstrate the flexibility of using JSF but you shouldn't use JFrames/JButtons etc to render on browser. JSF has it's own components library for web applications.
Shaiju. you're hurting yourself by not abiding by our naming requirements (http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp). A lot of us don't bother to answer questions from until people fix their display names. In your case it's cost you at least 2 days.
