Hello,
I have to design a web application with basic functionalites like login, access to databases, server side code(no EJBs). I see a lot of technologies like JavaServerFaces, STruts, content management sites(Zope,PLone,Mambo etc). How do I start?
Basically I am not very good at client side stuff. How do I make a decision as to which technoligies to use or otherwise should i work from scratch writing html,javascript,servlets etc??
Regards,
Shankar.

Before you choose technologies I guess you have to determine what kind of applications you are going to write... Are you going to build portals? Do you have to do a lot of complicated form validation? Do you have a lot of complex page navigation? Struts is becoming more or less a standard these days, but will probably get a lot of competition from JSF and the upcoming portlet technology. Struts does have a rather steep learning curve. JSF on the other hand looks very promising, but is still very young, and will probably change in the coming years....
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
