I can see the many points here, let me just chime in, however, on what
Part of determining a JSF library is finding the one that works right
for you. Trinidad has (for a long time) not bad any major increases
in functionality. While I do not consider the product dead, I can see
some of the frustration.
The thing about open source, however, is that it requires community
involvement. This isn't a commercial product. I know the developers
that I work with have a keen interest in maintaining Trinidad and we
answer questions and update things as best they can. If there is some
functionality you'd like to see in Trinidad, please open up a
discussion on the dev list about it. We'd like to hear from you.
If you decide Trinidad isn't right for you, I have heard good great
things about PrimeFaces although I've never used it myself. The
renderkit I generally use in my day to day development is ADFFaces
which is a Trinidad derivative from Oracle.
