    Angry JSF First impressions

    I am using NetBeans and I tried to do some JSF - just simply designing a web form with some default data in dropdown boxes, some list and a button. - Just playing around a little doing my first steps.

    Then I saw some extra nice objects like table or calendar (Woodstock or Standard).

    I faced several strange behaviour with missing elements on reload in browser, items missing from combobox, Combobox being in the upper left corner instead of where I have positioned it, annoying very little font for multiline text edit box and so on.

    I tried with Tomcat as well as using Glassfish with similar experiences, so I do not really trust this framework.

    Others with similar experience?

    I use JSF a lot and I recommend the framework.

    I usually use the MyFaces Tomahawk implementation.

    Thanks for the recommendation. In the meantime I have continuously tried JSF in several variants (different widgetset, using tomcat instead of glassfish, ...).

    I have faced several different issues and after upgrading to latest patches of components distributed with/to NetBeans 6.5 it seems to work now (as far as I can judge it from the current point of view).

    I am currently on:
    Product Version: NetBeans IDE 6.5 (Build 200811100001)
    Java: 1.6.0_10; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 11.0-b15
    System: Windows 2003 version 5.2 running on x86; Cp1252; de_DE (nb)

    I have found two links

    Getting started with Netbeans and MyFaces - Myfaces Wiki
    Building MyFaces in your IDE - Myfaces Wiki

    What I can see from this is that integration with NetBeans is not so seemless as with other components. What I would especially like to see is WYSIWYG design as GUI design is always one of the tasks that takes a lot of time.
