The trick is more likely in formatting the data in a bean such that you can easily display it using a h:datatable or h:panelGrid. So in stead of wanting to display the data is it is in the database, perform some translations on it to make the transition to a web display easier.
With a clever datastructure you can usually display most of anything with out of the box JSF components. if you cannot, you should investigate the extension frameworks (primefaces, richfaces, tomahawk, icefaces) to see if one of them has a component that fits more with your requirements.
