Dear Author:

As an expert, you probably has your opinion about which framework is the best. I do hopt to learn just one framework and can be used to apply many jobs. Like learning a popular MVC framework, Struts. With this skill, I can apply many jobs.

Thanks!

This isn't really an answer to your question, but I would still like to point out that when an expert--someone who has a lot of experience and knowledge about the domain in question--it is more likely that she will not be able to point out the "best" framework/product/technology. On her way to becoming an expert on the subject area, she has probably learned that no single framework/product/technology is best in everything. Instead, she will have learned to pick one of the available frameworks for a specific use because of the specific requirements of the situation for which the selected framework happens to be the best fit. In short, it all depends on the context.

Again, not answering your question but I felt that this is an important aspect to point out.

Thanks!

Our company just decide to use Rico. I do hope it is worthwhile to learn it. I am afraid that it is not popular. Then I will have to learn another framework when I go to other company.

Can you let me know if I learn Rico, will it help me a lot to learn other frameworks? Like I learned C++, though I am not using it anymore, but it does help me to learn Java faster. I would not consider it is a waste. Or different frameworks are really very different. Is the experience on Rico useful if I have to use other framework?

Thanks a lot!

um, you might want to rethink that.

Each framework is written by different people, they probably have way different syntax and ideas on how to do things.

Thanks!

I have Eric your book! Ajax In Action. I bought it a few weeks ago but did not start reading it yet.

Please let me know which framework is most popular? Like J2EE MVC has many frameworks, I learned only Struts, but I feel it is good enough to have it on my resume.

Thanks again!

Thanks for the reply on my behalf which is pretty much what I'd have answered - the framework chosen varies according to the nature of the project I'm working on.

Cheers

Also look in the back of my book if you have it in the appendix
