suggest a framework

I haven't done web development in recent years and now I am developing a web application (using JSP & Servlet). It’s a small application: 7-8 pages, 5-6 tables in database etc.

It’s a sort of learning as well.

Now my question is, which framework I shall use (if I should use any)?

That’s what my mind says:
Struts is too heavy for such application.
Same goes for JSF.
Not aware of any other frameworks, but if it's "hot" in market then I can use that.
Long time back I developed a custom framework, improving that & using that doesn’t add any “new name” in my profile.


Please provide inputs.
Thanks.

Do you need any framework at all ? For MVC, you can try the ultralight Frontman. If you insist on adding something on your profile, you could try Spring MVC and use other Spring functionalities for Database access.

Thanks Christophe. I'll try Frontman for this application.

Maybe I'll learn that this weekend during UFC.
