what's the different between those two?

it says that MVC frameworks, like Struts, can be integrated on either Spring Web Module vs Spring MVC Framework.

it seems like redundant for me..
please explain..

Thanks.

Sorry, but that's not the point.

what i'm asking is about Spring Web Module vs Spring MVC Framework instead of Struts vs Spring.

it's based on Spring in action chapter 1 at page 10-11, figure 1.1.

thanks.

The Spring web module provides some basic utility classes for web applications and also provides integration points with Struts and JSF. But, by itself, the web module doesn't provide an MVC implementation.

The Spring MVC module is a subframework built upon Spring and the Spring Web Module providing a complete alternative to other MVC implementations.

So, if you're using Struts in your presentation layer and Spring in the service layer, you'll be using the Spring Web Module, but not the Spring MVC module. But if you're using Spring MVC in your presentation layer, you're using both modules.
