Is it feasible/advisable to use multiple component libraries in a JSF application?
For example, can we use tomahawk,icefaces and primefaces in a single application.
How do we go implementing it?

<servlet>
<servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>javax.faces.webapp.FacesServlet</servlet-class>
<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>Faces Servlet</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>*.jsf</url-pattern>
<url-pattern>/icefaces/*</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

Do we differentiate the same on the basis of url-pattern?

I don't know about mixing icefaces and primefaces, but I have mixed Tomahawk and RichFaces.

There are no guarantees, however. Some of these extension tagsets customize internal JSF processes and may do so in ways that conflict with how other vendors do it.

Thank you for the input. One of my friends suggested that It also makes the application heavy and pages take more time to display.
