I am designing a web application that has number of data entry forms. Then there is some business logic and database operations etc. I would like to use MVC architecture and would like to use some web application framework
I am not sure whether Struts would be a good choice or any other web application framework like Echo?
Has anyone ever used Echo framework? I read that it is Swing based. Does it have server side framework?

I just did a brief search for the Echo framework. It is a server based framework. One thing that jumped out at me is that javascript is required on the client side. I tend to try to avoid Java script since it is easy for the end user to disable it.
