Core Java Server Faces

I am deep into Core Java Server Faces by David Geary and Cay Horstmann. The MVC lifecycle is definitely a refinement of Struts. I like it so far. Nicely written. The Eclipse IDE I use had very good support for JSF. I like the fact that finally Sun has realized that its not just geeks that need to be attracted to Java, but regular programmers too. VBesque ease is probably good but not at the expense of patterns and fundamentals. The VB paradigm is basically ease of use at the expense of everything else. Yuck...
