Hi Frederic Daoud

1. Really this is the first time I heard abt Stripes. Is it a mature framework?

2. What are the security concern options we have in Stripes? like spring security (acegi) in spring?

3. Is this a framework for simple HttpRequest, Reply or for JSF?

4. Is there any maven archetype for Stripes?

Hi Chaminda,

To answer your questions:

1. Yes, Stripes 1.0 was released in 2005 and is now a mature framework used in production sites.

2. You can use any security package, such as Spring Security (Acegi), JSecurity, and so on. Stripes also has its own security plugin, Stripes-Security, available at

3. It is an action-based framework, and so works hand-in-hand with the HTTP request-response cycle.

4. Stripes-Quickstart is an Ant script that creates a Stripes project for you, and you can customize all the settings to suit your requirements. It is available at:
