Can someone tell me which is the best faces to use. Is it Apache's MyFaces or Sun's JSF1.2?
Or can someone forward me to a link that tackles the detailed comparison (pros and cons) of these 2?

Sun's JSF has provides you with JSF components and My Faces provides you with a another set. I believe from JSF 1.2, you can mix and match between the JSF components (They have been standardized). Look at the list of components you want to use in your application and see which one, or both, provide you with the same

MyFaces doesn't have a v1.2 yet, so only Sun's is available. I don't have a high opinion of the Tomahawk components, although Sun's set is more limited, but that's a personal belief, and I'm sure there are many who would disagree.

If you're using Spring, you really should look at Shale (shale.apache.org) - it's essentially a next generation of Struts with JSF and Spring.
