I've got a fairly good sense of how the UIX will go to JSF now, but when you said the UIX JSP tags would be phased out, I wanted some clarification because one of the alternatives we were thinking about was using JSPs with the UIX JSP tags. The advantage of this would be sticking with JSP technologies rather than switching to UIX. The disadvantage would be that, if we go with UIX for now, you will migrate that to JSF for us, whereas if we go with just the UIX JSP tags, we would have to do the migration to JSF ourselves. However, if you will be desupporting the UIX JSP tags, then we would probably want to choose between UIX and JSPs with some other tag library.
Sorry about that, too many posts to OTN lately. Anyway
I would think that the UIX JSP issue would be just like
the UIX XML issue. That the UIX JSP language would change
just like the UIX XML language and would converge on
something that would work well with faces. The difference
between UIX XML and UIX JSP is that we would provide an
upgrade tool for XML but not JSP.
