If you are doing great with Struts then you need not shift.

Well, if you ask me that you are planning to commence something from scratch and you decided Struts. Or something like you are having tough time using Struts. Then I would definitely say, use JSF, Tapestry kind of framework instead. JSF is an standard and a fast growing framework.

You would, surely, find JSF far more better then Struts. Its a component based framework and save alot more time. It can do all struts can do in a nicer manner.

- Less configuration required
- Lighter then Struts
- Component based
- Short learning curve
- Really works

What about automated testing?
