with this project eclipse will have a visual jsf editor, for example like
that of sun java studio creator, with drag and drope from palette, etc.
alà visual basic.

Hi Marco,

We will have several visual tools as part of the release including the
ability to drag components onto a page and the ability to graphically edit
the navigation actions between pages (this is already available in the
latest demo release if you open any faces-config.xml using the Faces
Config editor contributed by Sybase).

I don't think the current release includes plans to have a Visual
Basicesque editor to do actual JSF page development.

If such an editor is important to you and your adoption of Eclipse or WTP,
then in true open source fashion, the best things for you do are:

1) Open a bugzilla against the JSF project asking for this feature. This
allows you to both a) get e-mails from bugzilla when we update progress on
the issue and b) allows other to vote for the feature by CC'ing themselves
on the bug.

2) If possible, propose ways that you could contribute support toward such
a feature such as contributing code, testing time, documentation etc. JSF
is a pretty small team and the more resource that you can add toward a
feature, the more likely it is materialize.
