Hello, I need to create a website using Java frameworks, the website must pull data from different mssql views , I'm thinking of using Spring Boot+PrimeFaces but someone suggested I should use Thymeleaf instead of primefaces, I don't have any experience in either, so I'm wondering if someone has some advice based on their own experience? thanks!

I need to modernize a Java web application that runs on JSF. I am used to building websites, so Bootstrap kinda feels like "home." But when it comes to applications, I feel Bootstrap is not the right way to go. Can someone explain to me what PrimeFaces is capable of in comparison with BS?

How to integrate React in legacy JSF Web application?

I have a legacy system that uses JSF technology, and I want to migrate this system to React. JSF uses PrimeFaces UI Component Library, and I am planning to use PrimeReact to make migration easier. However, this system has a lot of pages, so I cannot migrate all the pages at once, and it will take a lot of time. As a result, I want to break the system down into parts and migrate each part one by one. Is there a way to use both JSF and react at the same time? For example, one part of the website works with React, and the other part of the system works with JSF. To be more specific, 60 pages work with React, and 100 pages work with JSF. How can I configure something like that? What will happen to the security of the system? This technology has a login system, so will there be any vulnerabilities? Will this affect the performance of the system? I could not find any detailed information on the internet, so I will be very grateful if anyone can share their experience with this topic. Thank you in advance.
