Facelet observations, day 1

Here are my initial observations of Facelets:
  • Error message are much better reported through Facelets than without. Jacob has scratched an itch many of us in the Java EE community have had for a very long, long time. Thank you for informative error message pages. Much appreciated.
  • Very quick. JSF overall seems very spunky, compared to Struts. Just unquantified observations at this point, but it does seem quick.
  • I like that I don't have to define everything in JSF XML markup. That's a tough sell to most dev. shops. XHTML is the way to go.
I have FORM-based authentication finally working within my example application. Nothing special, but I was have some difficulties with this and I think I have those issues resolved.
