Hi... i've read so much about struts and its popularity... but I was wondering if any of you guys has used barracuda, wich seems to be pretty similar to struts.
according to the Barracuda guys, Struts is sort of "pull-MVC" model, whereas barracuda is "push-MVC model".
what I liked was this:

in barracuda, The separation of Presentation and Programming logic is both clean and enforceable (there is no way for a developer to actually embed server side logic into the markup)

I kind of liked this, since in struts you can actually put some scriptlets in your jsp's..
for more info:
any comments??
