We are in the process of developing a social networking portal similar to facebook / myspace. We are looking for best framework which suits the application.

We are going to choose one among Struts 2 or Spring. Can anybody suggest which one will be better?

Any suggestion in this regard is highly appreciated.

Thank you.

Neither. Both. Hm, maybe we have no way to answer this because we don't know anything about your application. "Social networking site..." is very vague.

Well .... to give more about the requirements, below are the ones:

1. Portal Administration (add/remove portlets etc)
2. Multilanguage support
3. Multiple markup support (html/wml etc)
4. Multiple device support (standard browsers / cell phones etc)
5. Creation and management of social groups
6. Search functionality (searching friends within the portal - which requires caching)
7. Personal Mailbox
8. Upload images/ videos and tag them
9. Share media (files/images/videos) among the members of a social group
10. Event handling (shared calendar events - menas if one person entered a event in the calendar, members in his social group can see that event)
11. Inviting friends
12. Logging & tracing (technical side)
13. Deployment of such an application
14. May be customization / personalization
15. Registration & login
16. Authentication & authorization
17. Security

etc.

We have already decided on the platform and below are the softwares we chose:

1. Linux OS
2. MySQL 5 as RDBMS
3. Jetspeed 2 as portal server
4. Tomcat 5.5.23 as app server
5. ant1.7.1 as build tool
6. Eclipse as the IDE

For the above specification, which framework you suggest?

Thanks in advance.

For the sake of above requirements, i would suggest looking into a Content Management system(at least a open source one) and think about offloading the image hosting or videos to a CDN(like Akamai)
