Hi David,

Welcome!


Does JSF really simplify web development? Atleast to me the learning curve seems alot harder than Struts.



Thanks in advance.

Hi Mcgill,

By itself, no, JSF does not really simplify development. Remember that JSF is an application framework like Struts, with a component model and an event model. You don't get all of that stuff for free as far as learning curves go.

But JSF will drastically simplify development when it does what it was really meant to do: drive killer IDEs. Those IDEs will simplify your development. We're just starting to see those IDEs arriving on the market now.

Thanks David for your quick reply.


I have one more question

Will JSF be the default industry standard forjava based web applications?



Thanks.

Well, I guess such kind of question is pretty hard to answer... It also depends on the industry acceptance as well... But as for the future of JSF, Mr.David replied to Pradeep in that thread also... I guess you might want to have a look at that...
