Hello Budi,

First of all thank you for your book. I've already bought it in Amazon (Kindle edition).

I had not been able to found a good book/tutorial for the Servlet 3 specifiaction.

Although I develop using JSF2, you say that one won't be able to code effectively and efficiently without an excellent knowledge of Servlet and JSP.

I think you are right, in the end JSF uses a Servlet as its "point of start".

My question is: For simple/small applications, what do you recommend? To use "plain" Servlet/JSP or a framework (Struts2, JSF2, etc...)?

Thank you !

Hi Armando,

For a very small application, then Servlet/JSP will do. However, if you think the app will grow in complexity in the future, why not start with JSF/Struts 2?

I do not believe that complex apps require a framework. A lot depends upon the capabilities of the staff, and sometimes the nature of the application.

You're right, Bear.
I should've just said 'grow' instead of 'grow in complexity'
