I found Groovy (http://groovy.codehaus.org/) be a very good help as it  
makes things much easier in terms of scripting things or dealing with  
regular expression but staying on the Java Platform on the same time.

I gathered quite a bit experience in JSF (JavaServer Faces) in the  
last years.
All I can say is that the existence of frameworks like these have  
their reason.
Once you are in they make your life much easier. Your code will get  
cleaner and much more maintainable which after all saves a lot of time.
