I'm currently devloping a site and have dicided to use java/servlets/mysql

But I'm very confused.... isn't it enough with jsp/servlets? What is the big fuss about struts, JSF etc. Are the response servlets?

Struts, JSF, Spring and the other big frameworks supposedly make it quicker and easier for you to get your web apps up and running.

I have found them otherwise.

Personally, I just think that they move around where you spend your time, but in the end, you don't end up with the final, tested product any sooner.

I'm a "less is more" kind of guy and would rather spend my time dealing with straight-forward and simple code than trying to wrestle with someone else's humongous framework.

You will likely get other opinions, and your own mileage may vary.

Thanks!

So JSTL is not recommended for faster devoping?
