Hi ,
I have one exercise for you. I hope you will like it.

[This exercise is useful when someone want to know about something with very few statements/lines.]

It goes like this.

1. Siblings of Stripes [Which are the similar (closest) framework.]
- state few characteristics, which are similar.

2. Opposites of Stripes [Which are the total opposite or complementary frameworks - (If any)]

3. Uniqueness of Stripes [Something is which is unique, no one has it]

4. One example showing major benefits/capabilities/responsibilities of Stripes
[I don't know, weather writing example down in few lines or not, but if it is not possible within few lines, then omit this point please]

One of the frameworks that is close to Stripes is Struts2. Stripes still requires less configuration, and has less complexity to get things done.

You'll find a more detailed discussion here:

Gregg has posted a nice example here:

Opposites would be the component frameworks (JSF, Wicket, etc.).

Stripes is an Action framework for dealing with HTTP requests, the component frameworks tend to take over the HTTP request and hide it from the developer in order to manage all of the complicated state that they need to get that component "look and feel".
