JSF: Which implementation should I use?

A few weeks back, Bill Dudney recommended I use MyFaces for my JSF app. He said it was less buggy than Sun's version. When I looked at MyFaces's website today, I noticed all their releases are betas - which is not a good sign IMO. Anyone have experience with either one? I think I'll go with Sun's as it probably has a larger community, and therefore more information.

I'm also hoping to use the JSF-Spring package. I was a little scared when I saw it's lack of documentation, but then I discovered it's in the JavaDocs if you scroll down. I'm not looking forward to the JSF's tag soup, but hopefully it won't be too bad.

I'll answer yours, you answer mine.
I have only used the Sun reference, but I think if MyFaces is gaining steam, and moving into Apache then run with it.
I would hope JSF starts to become more adopted.

We've been very happy with JSF-Spring so far -- the only magic it doesn't work is letting faces-config wire JSF beans into a Spring-managed bean. We haven't been using MyFace, but I've noticed that every single major heartbreaking bug I've had to work around in Sun's JSF is supposedly already fixed in those MyFace betas.

Matt, beta is because of, we didn't passed the TCK to be an *official* JSF-Implementation, yet! Every Impl of JSF, that hasn't passed that Tests is called Alpha or Beta . Hope that helps you
