What is struts faces all about? what are its advantages?
Is the project on or dead? and is there anyone who has used it successfully?

The only MVC framework i have worked on in java in struts.
what i know about struts-faces is that we can use jsf along with struts. But, why use another MVC framework along with struts, which itself is a MVC framework?

Because you get the front-end power of JavaServer Faces (JSF), the content-formatting strengths of Tiles, and the flexibility of the Struts controller tier all wrapped up in your J2EE Web application
In a JSF-and-Struts integrated application, JSF components handle the purely visually-oriented HTTP requests, while business transaction events go through the standard Struts-request-processing lifecycle
I agree. Here's the link:
