Hi David,

I know at least one framework that can do it. It's called Xaja:

In fact, it is doing much more than just providing facelets since its main
purpose is to provide reverse ajax features.
It already supports a number of custom tags, and especially, it provides a
wrapping of the ExtJS Javascript library.
You can have a look at the doc here:

The technique to write additional components still lacks documentation but
if you have a look at the code, it is not that difficult.
And I can provide some help.

I'm sure there must be other frameworks around providing custom tags. Any
one know another one on the list?


Disclaimer: I am the main developer of Xaja :)
