This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
It is said that struts is an implementation of MVC. But can anybody tell me that how struts is superior to MVC. Struts is a framework. MVC is an architectural design pattern that the Struts Framework (and other Frameworks, proprietary or customised) uses. The statement that Struts is superior to MVC, I think is unfair, because both are not comparable, one is a design pattern thats a blueprint for implementation, and the second is a flexible implemented web application framework. why struts is so famous. what are the faclities it provide over MVC. Of the Model, View and Controller components of the MVC, Struts provides its own Controller component (open source). For the Modelyou could use standard data access technologies, like JDBC and EJB, etc. For the View, Struts works well with JavaServer Pages and other presentation systems, making it a very flexible framework to develop an application around. Especially as it does not have very hard and fast technology restrictions. It uses standard design patterns, is open source and help on it is widely available.I guess thats why its famous. You could try http://jakarta.apache.org/struts for more details.
