Hello People,

This is something that gives mixed response on the internet.
Is Struts MVC or Front Controller?

Please share your views.

Does it have to be one or the other? I say both.

BTW, I do not understand why there are so many posts that try to force a framework into a pattern. Struts is Struts. It is influenced by various patterns and practices but it is not some textbook implementation of any patterns.
