Can JSF coexist with Stuts, or is it a replacement of the Struts framework?

There was an effort to make struts and JSF coexist. Then Shale came along. There is a bit of discussion on that here. My opinion, and I think I share this with others, is that if deciding between JSF and Struts for a new project, just go with JSF and a good implementation like MyFaces. If you currently have a working Struts app, don't attempt to convert just for the sake of converting. If it ain't broke...

No, that isn't at all what I am saying. Struts is still very heavily used in the industry. So if it's your resume you are concerned with, Struts is still a good blurb on it. Nor am I saying that I think JSF is the future and everyone should learn it.

But if someone walks up to you and says


We are creating a brand new application. We can use Struts or JSF and I need you to choose...



Then I'd say choose JSF.
