Hallo,

I'd like to work on a JSF 1.2 framework web application using MyFaces but now I've come across Tomahawk, Trinidad, Tobago and Sandbox for Tomahawk. It couldn't get more confusing.
Now, which of these three component suites would be most recommendable in terms of ease of use e.t.c? What are the fundamental differences anyway?
I'll be really happy to get a response on this. Thanks.

Tomahawk is a set of basic extensions to the core JSF, and it adds things like the ability to do a scrollable datatable.

I may not be totally correct in what follows, since it isn't really well explained and I haven't tried to work with it.

Trindidad is an open-source implementation of Oracle's ADF tagset. There's some overlap with Tomahawk, I believe, but my understanding is that you can use both tagsets in the same application. ADF is an aesthetically pleasant set of tags, and I believe that (among other things), it supports "breadcrumb" tags.

In the real world, Tobago and Trinidad are closely linked, so I would hope that the JSF tagsets that adopted their names do likewise, but I actually don't know what Tobago does. I'd have to RTFM.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
