I will probably start using JSF for a new Project. Any recommendations on the best JSF framework to use?
I'm looking for
-Ease of learning
-Visual candy ( Rich faces or ICeFaces or maybe primeFaces? Is infragistics is worth the entry fee? )
-lots of ajax support
-Interoperability with eclipse and all available browsers

Thanks!

In my experience, there has been a trade off b/w RichFaces and IceFaces. Richfaces is easy to use but IceFaces requires  more effort but definitely gives you a lot more for that effort in terms of visual features. Have a look at the demo for at IceFaces.org.

As far as ajax support, is converned I would pick IceFaces.

Thank you for your comments. I guess I'm giving the boot to Infragistics :)

I vote for RichFaces. It has all that you listed.
I personally wouldn't buy the Infragistics, but that's only me. Using CSS you can do miracles with rich faces (it has its own css classes).
