Hey Ranchers,
I am faced with a decision-making rut and I really need your inputs on this. We need to decide how struts scales to websites with millions/hundreds of thousands of hits. Could you please share your experiences with examples how did you finally decide to go (or not to go!) with Struts for your web-applications.

I have worked in struts off and on, but none of the applications I worked have been up on internet for millions of users...hence the need.

we have struts fronting an app that was tested for 300 simultaneous users for 1/2 hour straight doing heavy DB queries with no problem. the app sits on 1 server that is shared by other apps. i'd imagine you want to load balance across a few servers for an app to be served to 1M+ users.

The issue of scalability keeps coming up in this forum, and I'm not sure why. When you think about it, Struts is nothing more than a few handy utilities that help you write J2EE web applications.

When you start to look at scalability, the important questions are:
  • How scalable is J2EE in general?
  • More importantly, how scalable is the specific application server you are going to run your J2EE application on?
  • How much money are you willing to spend on hardware and software to provide for a large number of concurrent users?
