The forum formerly known as "Struts and Other Frameworks" is now named "Web Application Frameworks".

The short description posted under the forum title listing was "Frameworks such as Struts, Turbine, etc." and is now "Struts, JSF, Tapestry, Spring, Turbine, etc."

The forum also changed section locations, from the "Products" section to the "Engineering" section.

Uh, Velocity questions should go in Other Open Source Projects or JSP. Velocity is really just a view technology, IMO. I wouldn't call it a Web Application Framework.

I guess technically Velocity is a template engine, although Neal Ford's Art of Java Web Development considers it a framework, albeit a small one. So I guess the point is somewhat debatable. Velocity is also used with Struts by many folks, so I still don't think it would be a bad place to direct Velocity questions, particularly since Tiles questions are also handled there (Tiles was once a standalone product and can still be run without Struts, see Tiles homepage).

I assume Tapestry starts going into the frameworks forum as of next week (after the book promotion ends.) Any particular day to switch?

Most Spring questions are not going to be about the web framework piece (it is probably the least used part of Spring). I actually think that the J2EE/EJB Forum is the most appropriate place for the vast majority of Spring questions(though some could realistically fall in ORM or JDBC)... Spring is a pretty comprehensive framework.

That said, I would like to see WebWork mentioned in the subtitle for the Web Application Framework forum and Spring to be qualified as Spring MVC.

I would say that depends on what part of Spring you are using. For example, if you are using Spring-ORM to integrate with Hibernate then you are best posting in the ORM Forum. In general, I wouldn't mind Spring questions in the J2EE/EJB Forum.
