Struts - Obselete
JSF - Rocks
Spring - has integration support for Struts and JSF

This thread might help you. For more you can search the same forum or google.

Thanks.

Wouldn't Struts Shale, by definition, rock?


There is no emoticon for what I am feeling!

Thanks for the info Jeff. Actually, I was talking about Struts Action Framework.

After reading overview and features of Struts Shale Framework. I would say its a nice one.

Still I was right. When we say Struts, it means we are talking about the traditional one. And now Struts Shale is itself saying Struts are obselete.

Struts - Obsolete

It's a mature technology, and probably won't evolve further. But it is widely used, and I see no rush happening to replace it by adopting something else. That's not obsolete by my definition.

Developers are not going for Struts for their new apps, I guess. Hence, I used the word obsolete. May be there are people around who wants Struts, even in the presence of JSF, Tapestry etc. And I agree that there are, relatively, alot applications out there on Struts.

That may be. But I'm seeing the opposite happening, and the Jobs Offered ads indicate that Struts experience is way more widely sought than anything else, and not just for maintaining existing applications. So it's definitely not a clear-cut case.

I also don't see new developers moving much to spring or jsf. In our workplace struts is used by default unless clients specifically require spring of jsf, which we apparently don't get orders.
