Set of well defined classes and interfaces that provides services to our application.
Ex: Struts. It is an open source web application frame work from Apache Software Foundation

Hi Deepthi,

your question is too descriptive and hard explain more about here.. but i give you small definition....

A repeatable or predefine solution for commonly occurred software problem.

framework design by developer which is made based on design patterns and easy to use with any application...

like if we take example of Struts then you know Struts 1.3 there is front-controller which is heart of this framework now this front-controller work as controller so and every request comes front-controller first and then select business logic according to request and dispatch request to jsp page.

So, Struts use two design patterns MVC- Model view controller and Front controller . So combination of design patterns make framework..

Thanks, Nishan Patel

Are you trying to ask what a Framework is or what the Struts Framework is??
