I have never used struts nor JSF. My team starting a new project. What should we go for? I know struts is a proven framework, but will JSF replace Struts in the near future? Which one of these technologies is not a BUZZ framework? Is it easy to learn JSF?
thanks

I have used both, and unless you have a JSF-friendly IDE, Struts is the only way to go. JSF pages are difficult to design without a tool that understands the expected coding patterns. I personally do not see JSF replacing Struts. However, time will tell.

As I said in another post, JSF and Struts are supplementary, not replacing each other.
You can use Struts to provide MCV model in client side, while you can use JSF to make a more fancy and standardize client components.
Thus, they are helping each other, not replacing.

According to this discussion, an argument could be made otherwise.

Hello Hanna Habashy,
JSF is still new technology, i will recommend you to go with struts at the moment. May be you can shift to JSF at later stage. According to Bill Dudney in other thread, there are ways by which you can gracefully shift your code from struts to JSF.

I have asked that question in this thread. But the author seems to miss that thread... I hope he will reply to my post soon... I can see that there are a lot of posts for the authors to reply... He might miss some, including mine...
But it's worth to wait for a reply from an author as him...
