JSP2+CustomTaglib vs Struts/JSF

I had few projects finished last year without using any well-known MVC framework such as Struts/JSF. They are all implemented using JSP2 with no scriptlet at all. All by using custom-tag (and some 3rd party taglib).

All tags we built were extended from a generic tag to speed up the development, while actual business logic were written in POJO/Session Facade/Hibernate and tested outside the container.

My question is: I am happy with pure JSP2 + custom taglib design.

So, is there any benefit of keep using Struts or even JSF?

Hi "bid BADguy" -

I'm going to move this to the JSP forum where it seems more appropriate to the question.

Also, please review our naming policy and change your display name accordingly. Thanks.

I use neither JSF nor Struts and am perfectly happy with my web apps that use JSP 2.0 scriptless pages and custom actions.

I personally see no advantage in adopting such frameworks.
