Java Server Faces

Given the passions on both sides of the UI Designer to include or not include I'm almost afraid to ask a related (logical extension) product feature/roadmap question.

Now that IDEA is supporting swing GUI development, what are the plans or thoughts on supporting something like Java Server Faces? I realize that it's in public draft mode right now, I'm just thinking down the line.

I would like to use IDEA for all of my developers work and a significant portion of that is current done using JSP (or insert your favorite web markup framework). We are starting to get our feet wet with JSF and wondering what support JetBrains is thinking of providing in the future?

JetBrains is going to provide a better alternative to JSF in the near
future. Stay tuned.

My gut feeling is that this is a bad decision; Java Server Faces seems (as
far as I can tell) to be gathering momentum at the moment and support for
that standard could become a major selling point for IDEA. I presume you've
made the decision for a reason though; any chance you could share some of
your insights?

Well I'm hoping they've come up with a way to allow any UI taglib to be
integrated into IDEA. That way you can use JSF, I can stick with using my
custom Webwork UI components, others can use Struts. Everyone's happy :)

Due to demands of our clients, we are considering moving from a "light" weight Swing based client to a Web Browser based model. One of the architectures we are considering is Java Server Faces. We have been using IntelliJ Idea for almost three years and would be interested in what IntelliJ and others might have regarding the best approach.

thanks,
