I can't understand why you are confused, confusion comes when all are doing the same thing, and you have to choose any one.. Here, all the 3 said frameworks, i.e struts, hibernate and spring are all different frameworks, for instance, you can compare struts and spring mvc( which is one of the module of spring), but certainly not struts and spring.

if you ask me, i recommend you to learn all the 3 frameworks, which will put you in the right path...

Of the three, I think Spring is the most important to know, because the other two (Struts and Hibernate) can make use of Spring. The principle behind the core of Spring, "dependency injection" (or "inversion of control") is one of the foundations of clean, testable Java code--whether or not you use Spring to *achieve* it isn't really important, but a lot of people use Spring.

Spring is a *big* framework--you'd need to focus only on certain parts.

@ Prasad : thanks a lot for the suggestion but right now i want to start with any of those three framework.

@ David Newton : thanks a lot David for the valuable suggestion and now i will go and start learning Spring.
but one more thing David, can you please suggest me any book on Spring's latest version.
i have surfed internet and come across few books from which i found Pro Spring 2.5 book's review at the best.
so can you please suggest any of the book for Spring.

thanks and regards,
Prateek Sharma.

I'm still a Spring in Action fan, but the Apress books are pretty good as well. There aren't too many 3.0 books available yet.

Your best bet would be to ask the Spring questions in the Spring forum.
