Hello,
I'm in the process of creating a website for a study group I'm in and I was considering using old Struts and Spring (I'm familiar with old Struts). Since I want to create it quickly (don't we all) I was wondering how steep the learning curve would be if I tried to use Struts2 with Spring MVC.
I've read the writeup on Struts2 on the Apache Struts 2 website and it sounds magical, but I believe your perspective(s) would count for something.

Thanks,

Rich

There is a Struts 2 Spring MVC Plugin, though to be honest, I'm not sure how much it would get you. If you want to get a Struts 2 app up quickly, I'd recommend using one of the Maven archetypes, or Appfuse.

Thanks for the suggestion Don and Christopher. I've tried appFuse before, long time ago and didn't know that it was updated to use Struts2. As for my concern of the learning curve. Is there a big difference between Struts and Struts2? Also could someone comment on if Spring MVC would work well with Struts2?

You don't use both of them. They are both MVC frameworks. Did you mean Spring and Struts 2 ?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
