JSF Component Libraries


When a developer first starts working with JSF, the common question
is what components libraries are available and what do they offer. Answering this question usually requires some digging. 

The site jsfmatrix.net <http://www.jsfmatrix.net>,
however, tries to provide some relief.  This site provides a nice
comparison matrix of some of the more popular JSF component libraries
that are available. There are a few inaccuracies (for example,
Woodstock does include support for Facelets), but the author of the
site seems to perform updates as time permits (see the comments
section).

Of the component libraries listed, I can say that Woodstock, ADF,
Trinidad, Tomahawk, ICEFaces, RichFaces, Blueprints all work with
Mojarra <https://javaserverfaces.dev.java.net> (and by proxy GlassFish <https://glassfish.dev.java.net>).

There are two other component libraries that I also know work with Mojarra.  Manor 'n Rock <http://www.manorrock.com/products/jsf/> and Mojarra Scales <https://scales.dev.java.net>.

Manor 'n Rock has several useful components like Captcha, credit
card, electronic check, or ISBN.  All of the components have live
demos, which, incidentally, are running on GlassFish.

Mojarra Scales is a subproject of Mojarra run by Jason Lee <http://blogs.steeplesoft.com>. This component library exposes the YUI Javascript widgets as JSF components.

Comments:

Added a spotlight on this at TheAquarium.

Do you think we could have a table at the GlassFish WIki showing what libraries have been proven to work with GlassFish and which can interoperate?

Thanks,
