Quite some time ago Credit Suisse has decided to standardize a presentation framework. The results of the first step, the evaluation of a candidate framework were introduced in a presentation on Java User Group Schweiz ("HTML based UI framework evaluation, what really matters to an enterprise company" See <http://www.jugs.ch/html/events/2004/ui_framework.html>). The selected candidate was JSF. In the meantime a prototype application has been created using a first set of custom-components as a proof of concept. Based on the experiences made during this first prototype the decision to create a definitive component set has been reached. This presentation takes up where the former presentation finished. We document the experiences we made during the first prototype application and the creation of the definitive component set. During the presentation you hear what steps were taken to receive a positive decision on using JSF, from IT- Architecture and steering committee. What obstacles we faced on the way to the decision and how these issues were resolved. Why the decision was made to use JSF components and what the set of components we created are about. Additional frameworks that were used for development and the problems we faced using these frameworks. General problems that came up in the development phase of the component set and are explained including perceptions for future projects. We will also talk about benefits for Application- development teams are if a JSF component set is provided and our conclusion.
