Well, I'm new in java web technologies. All I know is JSP is like PHP that can be used to build dynamic pages. But I hear these words JSF and Jakarta Struts a lot these days. So, what exactly are these? Why use them? And what is a servlet? Want to see the big picture.

Struts is a ofently used Controller for JSP applications that makes your application easier to build and control using an M-V-C layer separation approach.
Struts is used in conjuction with JSP to control the flow of the application from page to page and to execute backend code.

Here is a simple example of using Struts in an application:

JSF is both a controller (like struts) and a better way to build Web UIs using components.
You can read an introduction to JSF and experience a simple tutorial here:

I am new to this as well. If you use JSF do you need to worry about trying to implement Struts, or is the general functionality in JSF?
 
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Is this a tiny ad?
