Will JSF handle a really huge webpage?

HI. I know Struts2 & JSP. My career hinges on the ability to create a WebApp that can display 6000 pieces of data on ONE WebPage. struts2 can't do it. Neither can using the C TagLib. Can someone tell me that JSF can handle this kind of volume. Speed is an issue, but right now, I just want to know if it is feasible? If not, do you have a recommendation?

Why isn't it feasible in Struts 2? It's a bad idea, but it is just a list of data.

Yeah, not understanding the "can't do it" part. Of course it can.

Are you talking about "with acceptable performance"? Most of the performance drag on that much data is going to be the browser. And no server-side framework's gonna help with that.

Is it really necessary to show all that data at once? That's a lot of data to be throwing at someone.

My eyeballs start to bleed after about 100 data rows or so. That's regardless of the limitations of the appserver, app framework or browser. I'd start looking at friendlier display formats first, myself.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
