Hi All,

I have a website running on Tomcat and using Struts2.0 with Mysql as DB.

The website displays the latest scores of the sports. As part of SEO I wanted to start a blog for my website. Something like mywebsite.com/blog

Can you suggest any simple framework that can plug in to Struts 2.0 so I can have blog features in my site. I thought of Apache Roller , but its too heavy for me as my site is not a standalone blog with multi user support and other features. I just want a simple blog where I am the only contributor and no comments or user management is required for me.

If such simple framework is not available, Please suggest me some simple architecture to handle blog requirement like where store data..


Thanks in advance.

http://pebble.sourceforge.net/ bills itself as lightweight and is a mature product.

Thanks for the suggestion Tim Moores.

i have gone through pebble.  Its in Spring and My current website is Struts2.0. Just thinking if its feasible ( in the terms of maintenance) if I combine both.

Or Should I have a separate application for Blog and have a sub domain blog.mydomain.com (which is not recommended  by SEO experts)

Or I should write my own Simple Template Engine in the existing application in Struts2 similar to Pebble by copying the Pebble patterns . As I dont need any fancy features like user management, comments section .. I think this would be possible way to go.

Please weigh in ..

I don't see why you couldn't use both Spring and Struts within the same web app.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
