What's your opinion on the usual lies and facts you can read about JSF?

Hi folks,

I'm currently exploring the new features of JEE 6 so I inevitably came to JSF 2.0 too. Recently I read Ed's excellent post about the untrue facts lot of people write in their blogs etc.

What's your opinion or experience with this? From other topics where I'm more familiar with than with JSF I can definitely confirm that most of these rants are just plain wrong or you quickly notice that those people simply never took enough time to fully understand the topic. The evolution of the other parts and APIs of JEE 5 and now JEE 6 is quite impressing so I suppose that a lot of so-called "facts" about JSF are simply wrong or outdated.

What do you think? Was JSF 1.x really that complex or bad? Has this changed with JSF 2.x? Any real world experiences already?

Thanks for your reply. I have nothing more to add to this than what you can read in my blog entry that you've already cited. However, I am very interested in what others think because I'm very aware that my own opinion is insignificant compared to what the users are actually saying. Users matter most!
