You may want to look at Apache Wicket. I've used it in one of my projects and I'm loving it

Dear,
It totally depends upon the requirements or the complexities of the current application.
As far as my experience, i can tell you some points that may help you to make decision.
Java Server Faces:
its a good framework. it has cool components. and will help you to build rapidly. But if you got stuck then let me clearly tell you that Java Server Faces do not have much help on line. so sometimes little problems takes much time to solve.
Rich faces, Ice Faces:
They are third party libraries based on Java Server Faces. so they have same pros and cons as per Java Server Faces.
adobe flex:
Its very fine and good option. in fact i am also coding in it now a days but the thing i have observed is because it depends upon the Flash Players so some time it works fine on a browser but fails on the other.

So Brother, Its up to you. Final decision is yours.

Regards,

I recommend JSF.
If you dont find some components in core JSF , you have flexibility to use other thirdparty components like richfaces, tomahawk library in core by simply configuring them.

I have used this for 3 projects and I find it cool.

Flex is having pretty good advantages....
like automatically updating the offline data when the server is active
drag and drop features and others

i would recommend jsf from the options given by you.

jsf is standard framework supported by sun, rest all i don't know but are not popular, imo.

How about using ADF faces?which is cool and having lot of charting and datagrid controls. Has anybody used it?If so can you share your experiences.

I may be posting on old thread but its a good one to start discussing on this thread.
