Struts is model neutral so you may use either of those.

As Matthew pointed out, Struts is model-neutral (and view-neutral too). The point of Struts is to provide a front controller for your application. This is the missing piece in the Java platform. We have a lot of view stuff and a lot of model stuff, but no controller stuff.
The key advantage of Struts is that you can use it with what you already have. It fits in between your JSP or Velocity templates or XLSTs and whatever you want to use to access persistant data (JDBC, JDO, EJB).
For more about using Struts with EJBs, see Struts Tip #18 - Use EJBs with Care
HTH, Ted.
