I have worked with struts and developed many apps with it but not with jsf.
Now while going through articles online, i find info on using struts and jsf together. There are various advantages discussed. So i get the picture.
But I was thinking if I can get some info from ppl in here who has actually worked on a real world application combining the two.
How good is it considering the complexities it introduced in the application including maintaining a team with both struts and jsf knowledge? And, well, any problems you might have encountered during development of such an application.
I haven't done a web project combining Struts and JSF, and I don't really think I'd want too. As you mention, it would seem to bring too much needless complexity to a project to introduce two frameworks that both handle the UI portion of the project. At this point I don't see any good reasons for mixing the two, but I would be interested in reading the articles you refer to. Can you post links to some of them?
