I just wanted to ask that now a days JSF is getting so much popularity then what will be the future of struts.

The JSF has most of the work, like validations, done at the server end which, pretty much, affects performance. JSF needs additional support to turn it into client side validations.
I think struts is here to stay, mainly because of the large community that supports struts.


Thank you,
Reehan

I'd also add the two are not mutually exclusive. JSF's sweet spot is its server-side UI component framework, and I'd say Struts' sweet spot is its MVC controller. With the Struts 2 JSF plugin, you can use Struts 2 to handle the request process, even use Struts 2 actions, but then hand off to JSF to render the HTML to the browser. Spring is creating a JSF integration library for Spring MVC that takes a similar approach.
