Since Spring3.0 is stable, need to know if JSR 286 portlets development using Spring portlet api's is a good idea instead of the current rage of JSF in IBM RAD / Portal Server 6.1 ? In other words is it a good option that we can leverage MVC support provided by SPRING over what is provided by JSF ?
Spring has its own Spring Portlet MVC framework which is exclusively designed to support portlets 2.0. If you already know Spring MVC then in no time you'll be up and running with Spring Portlet MVC framework. If you look at the API of Spring Portlet MVC then you'll find that it uses the same class / interface name (but different packaging) to make things very easy for any Spring MVC developer to easily learn Spring Portlet MVC. I will say that currently Spring Portlet MVC is the best MVC framework for developing portlets. Using Spring Portlet MVC 3.0 annotations (and support for Bean Validation API, Unittesting using TestContext framework) further simplifies development.
