Job Trends: JSF Catches Swing

JSF passed Swing in April 2007 as the GUI model with the most job demand; looks like it's been neck and neck since then

Rick Hightower's Blog

JSF did well in 2007. Let's put it this way: If job demand for the Struts framework and JSF were a stocks and you invested in it in April of 2005 by July of 2007 you would barely break even with Struts but with JSF your investment would have grown 700% as of July 2007. (According to indeed.com.)


Note: Struts continues to do really well; it is still number 1. Yet after Struts, JSF is doing well and Struts growth is as flat as EJBs.

See how JSF does against all other competitors in Rick's next graph, which can be found along with the rest of this article at his blog here.
