Hello JSP people,
I may have the opportunity to code an Online Newspaper - articles, ads, authors, etc. I have done something similar using Model 1 PHP, this time, I'd like to use Model 2 with JSP. Anyone know of a good place to start, or point me to a template of some sort?
Thanks You in advance!

Interesting project, but I'm not sure how close a fit this is for a "Model 2" approach. Typically Model 2 suits web applications with a lot of dialog between the users and the system.
As I understand the idea of an "on-line newspaper" the user interaction will mostly be reading and following links to other articles and so on. For me this feels much more like server-side pregeneration of a mostly static (in HTML terms) site. Do you envisage much more by way of interactive pages? Have I misunderstood your project ?

Thanks - I was more or less concerned about subscriptions, priveleged areas ( for subscribed users - they get to see the most current content), sessions, personals, classified responses, via a front controller type setup. Also the experience I would gain is also a factor.

Answer: Probably not my project, but my goals were not clear. Thanks

Model 2 is MVC - Model-View-Controller

  • Model 1 is NOT Model 2 - everything is kinda on 1 JSP (connection - view - logic - etc)
