14.8 Integrating JavaServer Faces with Struts
You want to migrate an existing Struts application to JavaServer Faces without hav
ing to rewrite the entire application.
Use the Struts Faces integration library.
It's reasonable to consider JavaServer Faces (JSF) to be the son of Struts. In fact, the
creator of Struts, Craig McClanahan, serves as co lead for the JSF specification. Unlike
Struts, JSF specifies a component model for the user interface of applications. Theoreti
cally, that model can be rendered by any type of user interface, and not just a web
based interface. But in its current release, JSF targets web application development.
