Hi Budi,

I never use struts in my projects but used inhouse MVC framework.

what is your view about struts 2 future? will it widely used as Struts 1.2 story?

Struts will never be a Sun-supported standard. JSF is and will always be.

Nevertheless Struts 1 is the most popular MVC framework. Searching for Struts-related jobs at today returned 2,253 jobs, as opposed to 693 jobs that require JSF skill. Since Struts 2 is much more powerful than version 1 (and easier to learn too), it is a logical skill upgrade for those currently using version 1. So yes, Struts 2 will be as popular as its predecessor.

about the jobs statistic, I feel they refer to Struts 1.2 since the old struts is a de facto standard for many years before and companies still need someone to maintain it.

JSF looks clumsy to me, hope struts 2 will much better solution.
I agree. Here's the link:
