Hi all,
I want to develop a web application.
It will built on top J2EE 1.4.
Could you help me to choose what I should use, Struts or JSF?
Where can I read good resources about those so that it can influence my decision.

Well, Struts certainly does have its quirks but it also has a lot bigger user base right now than JSF so you'd probably get more help with questions on how to do specific stuff with Struts. Have you used any Java web framework before?
