Well, there are many useful Tomahawk components that I do not want to miss anymore (e.g. t:inputFileUpload or t:column). But there are even many sloppy components or code parts.

E.g. the schedule component supports a lot of custom style classes (as per API) but the corresponding attributes are not implemented (and thus ignored)!!! The shuttle selectmanymenu is very nice, too, but there are no headlines (so which box represents the selected items and which one the non-selected ones?). And the best is the UploadedFile class: getName() used to return the filename, but in the newest release this method returns the filename PLUS the local path in front. You update your jars and BANG your app doesn't work anymore as expected. *imagine some insulting words targeted at the Tomahawk developers responsible for those cardinal errors here >:D*

The idea of components is a huge strength but also a weakness of the JSF technology. There are many good components you can easily apply in your app and that save you lot of time, but there's also very much rubbish out there that can drive you crazy.
