Hi All,
sorry to ask the question. I'm new to JSF2.0 and I'm currently trying to develop a website using JSF2.0/facelets.
I wanted to create a modal dialog box using JSF2.0 but could not find a solution. I found that
RichFaces had examples that I could use. Is it offen common practice to mix RichFaces with
JSF2.0 ???.

My main project at the moment is an extensive RichFaces webapp using JSF 2.0 and it has, in fact, a number of pop-up modal dialogs in it.

Although the full benefits of JSF 2.0 for RichFaces is still awaiting RichFaces version 3, the functionality is there, and it's primarily the performance and code simplicity that's being improved. In the mean time, however, JSF2 and RichFaces do play well enough together that I've been running it in production for over 6 months.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

@Tim: just a minor correction, RichFaces 4 is based on JSF 2.

HTML Prototypes:
I agree. Here's the link:
