In Hightower's "JSF for non-believers" anti-FUD series? I cannot find it. He talks about creating your own components in part 4 but I don't think it covers dynamically constructing components at runtime.

s:decorate serves it's purpose and certainly deals with some aspects of boilerplate but it isn't a complete solution for me by itself. It doesn't build a form for me based on a bean and it's meta data (using appropriate input controls and labels etc). Neither does it solve the maintenance problem related to turning on and off ajax support for "on the fly" validation.

You can't do this kind of thing with facelet compositions alone, can you? There's going to be reflection and logic for choosing appropriate input controls etc...
