I'm evaluating and I've found very helpfull. Personally I'm interested in using it with Oracle ADF Faces but now there is no support to WYSIWYG ADF components. By the way a support guy told me that ADF support is on development. Congrats! m7!

Not sure if you are aware, but Oracle JDeveloper 10.1.3 supports visual development of ADF Faces, JSF RI and other taglibs/components like MyFaces as well..
For more info on Oracle & JSF:
UIX has the future?
but not supported
or you are using another busness component?
The developer preview of JDeveloper 10.1.3 contains a preview of our new look and feel, significant new refactoring functionality as well as JSF, but as noted in the 10.1.3 New Features list that came out with the first developer preview, it did not yet have any of the 10.1.3-enhancements to the Oracle ADF-related functionality. That will definitely there as part of the production release of 10.1.3. The combination of Oracle ADF and JavaServer Faces is one of the key new features of the 10.1.3 release, it just wasn't ready in time for that preview so we decided to do a preview with the features that were ready at the time to get early feedback from the community on those.
Wow, nice to see so many Oracle JDev developers commenting on the M7 NitroX JSF press release. We're flattered - really. BTW, when are you guys moving to eclipse? ;-)
I have to admit, if I were still in the java world, I'd never build another site without their tool. Period.
However I'm in .NET now... so... :)

your motorcycle is not worth working on. He has got bigger fishes to fry.

Some links on why Web Forms is not a silver bullet for everyone (if you grap out Web Forms from ASP.NET you end up with very similar thing as Servlet Specification):
Goodbye Web Forms:
Struts vs ASP.NET:
ASP.NET without .ASPX files:
Castle - Fun in Funland:
ASP.NET View Engine (limitations in castle):
No More ASP.NET WebForms?:

How does this compare to Sun's Java Studio?

I have tried Java Studio Creator and just read about NitroX.
On http://www.m7.com/appxray.do you can read:
"When you import an existing web application, NitroX scans all of the elements of your web applications ..."
In Creator you can't even think to import existing Web application. Creator manages all JSF, Java source and data access as he wants. It is even hard to chouse your own package names.
If you can write your JSF application without any JSF tool, but need tool just to be more productive, then Creator is not for you. NitroX looks like right tool in this case, but I haven’t tried it. I am waiting for a similar kind of JSF support in Netbeans that manages only JSP files, JSF configuration and relations to MY OWN Java source and.
Given that JSF 1.2 is imminent, featuring a "new" expression language, that makes the current JSF expression language deprecated: how soon will NitroX JSF work with JSF 1.2? How do tool vendors like M7, JSF component vendors like Oracle and people currently building JSF applications envision the transition of current JSF apps to JSF 1.2?
To my mind the very technological foundations of JSF are still undergoing change (with JSF 1.2) and yet there are already so many major investments in the technology being made...it's just a bit scary, I think...
