We have a web project which drives attributes from properties file dynamically, i.e. one config file with the attributes list and each attribute's view (either text box, textarea, radio, checkbox,etc) on UI page will be decided from that config file, so there is no static fields on the UI side.

I can do it with JSP and Servlets, but I need to write lot of code to load those properties and display them. Is there any chance we can do it from JSF? can any other solutions to do it? please give me the way to do it from JSF/other?

Yes, you can generate JSF views dynamically. All of the view objects have corresponding classes. For example, the <h:inputText> control is implemented via the HtmlInputText class.

You have to build up the view as a tree, and the easiest way to do that is to put as much of the page as possible into static JSF page elements (CSS skinning may help), then construct the rest from Java code.

It's not exactly a trivial task, but we do it often.
