Hi folks!
I'm starting a new web application development and I'm doubt about what to use to implement the Controller layer.
There are two sollutions that I know:
- Use the traditional servlet class implementation; and
- Use the struts framework.
Then, it has a new solution better than these ones? If no, which solution is recommended?
Thanks!

Joao, I like Struts, but I think struts is more for a Form based web application. Meaning it really helps with Validation, seperation of MVC, and some others perks. If it is a simple web page, then Servlets approach is simpler and quicker for you.
p.s. You had posted this question three times. I deleted the other two. Be careful with your Back button or multiple clicks on the Post button.
Good Luck
Mark

Mark hit the nail on the head but don't stop with Struts. There are a ton of frameworks out there.

You can also look into Tapestry. It might suit your needs.

Oh why should i agree with anyone.
I still think you should go with struts. It is widely accepted and will give you an option to learn something. I do agree that there may be better suited options for your particular web-application.
If you have one of the later IDE's like wsad5.1 or JDEV10g (maybe others as well) then making a struts applciation is not such a problem. To learn either of those, there is an added learning curve. But doing so (using struts and a good IDE) will help keeping your skills up to date.
take the little effort, and use struts
