Hi

Can you tell me the difference between struts and JSF? Is it possible to get rich user interface using JSF or do we have to go with AJAX?

Currently we are working on application which requires tabs. Which technology is good to get more naviagtion


Thanks

The main difference is that they are different frameworks . Seriously, they have a somewhat different flow. JSF makes everything widget/component based. It's possible for those components to be AJAX based. By definition if you are going back to the server for every little thing, you are using AJAX. Whether you are implementing it or another layer of the app is.

Neither one is inherently better or worse for navigation/tabs.
