JSF vs. run of the mill bile (continued)

After Rick Hightower posted a positive review of Java Server Faces, the alternative framework zealots decended on him like a rabid pack of OS/2 fanatics. He fought back valiantly here, here, here, and here. Along the way he was able to plug his company's training class, drew lots of attention to his JRoller hosted SourceBeat blog, and ended up as a feature story on Java Developers Journal. Score: RickHigh 1, Zealots 0.


Since you make it pretty clear that I'm the 'zealot' here, I'd like to point out that Rick is hardly an unbiased third party, and he stands to benefit in very many ways from advocating and pushing JSF. My 'bile' made it pretty clear that there aren't many advocates of JSF outside of the Expert Group and people with financial interest in its success.

Point taken. But, I did not mean to point the finger specifically at you Hani. I didn't notice you in the comments over at Rick's blog.

My comments were geared towards Matt Railble post. My comments and original post in this series had nothing to do with Hani's bile blog. Honest. I have a lot of respect for Matt Raible, but don't agree with him about JSF. I think Hani's blog is funny and entertaining, but most of the time he is obviously joking around. Matt on the other hand used JSF and formed an opinion. I have a different opinion. I wanted to state my opinion on JSF. How would you define a third party? I am not employed by Sun. I am not on the JSF working group. I teach/creates courses on Spring, Hibernate, Struts, Maven.... and more. I do consulting and contract programming with lots of different technologies. I happen to like JSF. Am I biased because I can make money at what I do? :o) I prefer technologies that my customers use. I like eating.
