Hi,
I want to learn a new application framework. Right now I am considering Struts, JSF and Spring. But I am not really sure which one to go for. I am basically looking to enhance my skill set by learning a framework which will be in good demand in the next 2-3 years. Please suggest me one out of these or any other framework you know of.

In next 2-3 years your would find few more frameworks. What will you do?
I would suggest try to get an overview of each framework and see which framework satisfies your need or look interesting.
And first search into Javaranch itself, every couple of days someone comes up with this question. So you must find lots of threads and discussion. Here is the One.

Thank you Vishal. Looks like at the moment Spring is the way to go.

You're Welcome.I am in the Spring too.
I would suggest two books, Spring in Action and Pro Spring 2.5.
