When you were writing this book, did you get chance to evaluate other frameworks and can you please justify the use of Tapestry framework, when you compare with current technologies like JSF and Struts 2, wicket etc.

Another great question for the author!! This promotions should be fun!

In the future, though, please consider a better subject than "Tapestry framework....". The authors that do these promotions often spend their spare time (which is few and far between) answering questions and it makes it a lot easier on them if the subjects are more meaningful towards the question being asked.

This book is a primer on Tapestry 5 and its main purpose is to make learning Tapestry 5 as easy as possible.

Substantial comparing of even two frameworks would require a separate, and a rather thick book. I have written an MSc dissertation comparing Tapestry 3 with Struts and JSF, and this dissertation can be downloaded from

This dissertation was written almost three years ago, but I think many of the points still make sense.
It looks like it's time for me to write you a reality check! Or maybe a tiny ad!
