Hello,

Even though I don't want to focus on web "view layer" development, I think it's important to learn a web framework. I hear Struts is the most used, estabilished and that version 1 is widely used, while version 2 is not so much because it comes from a different codebase. Concerning career planning, what would be better to learn? Struts 1 (even being obsolete) or Struts 2?

What about JSF (JavaServer Faces)? Do companies care about it as much as they do for Struts?

Thank you

If you understand the Web development concepts and technologies like JSP, Servlets, HTTP paradigm, MVC architecture, etc then Struts 2 will be a good place to start.

This question comes up in the struts forum all the time. Here is one typical discussion. Try searching the forum for others.
As Arulk says, learn the basics first as most frameworks build upon them.

Why not Flex?
