The main advantage is that JSF allows you to build GUI components for Web applications, while it could provide logic flow in connectionless environment. Of course, you need to pass in enough information so that JSF knows what to do.

Also, JSF provides event model so that each of the UI component could have its own handling method.

Detail could be refered to J2EE 1.4 tutorial, the JSF section.
