Hi all,
I recently bought the professional JSP 2nd edition to do my school project ,which I have to complete by end of the April(I work full time, so i don't have much time).
The authors are making me to read half of the the big book before I start the project.I never though to use the struts framework for the project, but as authors say again and again the struts can do these things more efficiently , I am in doubt now whether should I use structs now.
My project is a bookstore application with shopping cart and some adminstrative options.
Could anybody please suggest me what is the best architecture to follow?
Is MVC architecture good enough?
I really appreciate any suggestions.
-Archana

The Model 2 (aka MVC) architecture is a great pattern to use for any but the most trivial of web applications.
And you don't need to use Struts in order to use it. Struts is just one way of creating a Model 2 framework. In fact, I'd venture to say that if this is to be a learning exercise for you, rather than just getting a grade, not using a pre-built framework will teach you a lot more about writing web applications.
hth,
bear
