Can somebody give me a high-level overview of what the differences between these frameworks are, and how they can be used together? I realize I may be comparing apples and oranges. I am moderatley familiar with struts. It seems like Tapestry is only a presentation templating framework - similar to the "Tiles" component of struts, while JSF and Spring are actual application controller frameworks that you would use instead of struts alltogether (possibly with Tapestry for your actual presentation???).

The question you ask can be answered with a bit of reading on your part. It would really be too much to make a list of what you seek, although it could be useful in the future, I just don't have time.

If you just go to the home page of each of these techs you can get an overview of what they are about.

http://jakarta.apache.org/tapestry/
http://java.sun.com/j2ee/javaserverfaces/download.html
http://www.springframework.org/
http://struts.apache.org/

Also searching this forum as well as the Struts forum and the Application Frameworks forum for things like Struts vs JSF, etc as well as searching google for similar things will turn up a lot of results you'll find useful. Just put forth a bit of effort.
