Architecture what would you do?

Hi Folks,
We have a web application that is currently almost all written in xml.
We don't know how many concurrent users it will have, we are sure that there will be some but we are not sure how many. We want to keep separation of presentation layer and business layer.
My suggestion is that we use a JSP front end with a front controller and dispatcher to connect to the business layer. Tomcat will be the application server. We are going to use freeware for the persistence level and probably access the db with DAO's. This is not going to be a J2EE business layer- just java classes all implemented on one machine. Development Speed is of the essence. What would you recommend???
Should we use struts or is the learning curve too great?

Thanks,
Noel
