JSF Display capabilities

I have a use case where I am using a 3rd party tool to generate images, video, and PDFs from xml which i then need to display to the users. Is this a good fit with JSF or should I be using JSPs instead? (you may have guessed here that I don't have any experience with JSF)

It's a great fit for JSF.

JSF is just a way of separating the view from the business logic, so there's nothing you can do in JSP that you can't do in JSF (and probably better.)

I've built apps that do something similar to that using JSF/ICEfaces and I can tell you I'll never go back to JSPs.
I agree. Here's the link:
