I am new to frameworks and am trying to decide which framework, if any, I want to use with my J2EE web app. I will have two requirements in addition to everything else which can use servlets/JSPs: use of a web service to validate the login and integration with a third-party tool (as an alternate method of inputting data, which will be mostly large text fields.) I do not have a copy of the third-party tool and it is not well documented, but I will need to add it to the web page. Any ideas??

Thanks in advance!

For a situation like yours, I'd say the Spring Framework (http://www.springframework.org) is your best bet. It is very flexible, well written and easy to learn. It's also very good and integrating different technologies under one roof.

Hope this helps.

Sorry to be the spoiler here, but the question is: what do you expect the framework to do? Spring may address all of your requirements, or it may address none of them. Until we know what those are, we really can't comment on this.
Any framework can call a web service, so that doesn't rule out anything. And "integrating a third-party tool that is not known and not well documented" doesn't really help much either. If you can be a bit more specific we might be able to provide a more qualified answer.

+1. Although I am a fan of Spring I am not sure why everyone is suggesting Spring for the particular questeion being asked. More information is definately needed.
