There is one thing that renders this framework unusable - bugs. There is hundreds of registered bugs, but versions still get released with no fixes. They are not showstoppers but my team was able to find bugs in most of the major components. Some are JSF related (like ViewScope, which is useless for a full year now without a fix), some make you abandon the intuitive path for workarounds and hacks. Showcase may look good but a few months into development I am all for abandoning Richfaces and JSF in favour of anything else.
There's nothing good about richfaces - bugs in components, poor community support, overengineered components, old jQuery, skinning issues. Don't use.
