So, keep using JSP(with JSTL) and Servlets is a bad idea?

Posting this in the JSF forum is likely to give you skewed results towards JSF as its aficionados are the one who lurk here.

Personally, I would only use JSF if a large man were holding a powerful weapon to my head -- and even then, reluctantly. But you are likely to get other opinions -- which is good. Then you can sort through them and make your own decision.

- YES. It is way outdated.

JSF is only one of about 50 attempts to suggest something better than JSP within the Java world. And IMHO not the best one.

Consider using HybridJava.
