    I just installed the evaluation of the Pro version.
    I am quite oblivious to JSF, except for the basic concepts of managed beans and flows (from a 5 minute read of a quick-start and previous experience of Struts and Spring).

    I have to say, I am quite impressed!
    I had my first few forms and page flows up in no-time.

    I currently have no use for JSF in my work (doing backend integration), but after the evaluation period I just may buy the Pro version anyway because I may find use for it, and the price falls just below that $100, so it isn't that painful to pay (I usually go for 100% open source stuff).

    Great product!

    The hibernate stuff is pretty good too. Pair it with Hibernate tools.

    If you do heavy JSF or Struts editing this is currently probably the best low cost solution you can get...
