Hi,

I started creating a project. It is an online application aimed to automate a manual process. I am done with the Component part of the app, already figured struts actions, etc.

I am now working on the View part of the application. I am using tiles to aid me in layering the pages. I am almost done. But now I am trap in a middle of deciding which way to go. I just learned that there is an open source framework called struts-menu. One that attracted me is the way menu are rendered - page does not refresh unlike with my tiles based UI which refreshes page each time you click a link/menu.

My question now is, should I go for struts-menu or just beautify my tiles based pages? Does skills in struts-menu have advantages in the job market? By the way, this project I am working on is a review and a practice aiming to add/refresh some skills of mine.

Thank you very much in advance. I am hoping to hear from you.

Castor
