Hi All,

I've been working on a new web project concept for quite some time and now I am thinking to start with the development. I've chosen Struts 2 as my web framework. But lately I am seeing many negative comments (Framework Comparison) about Struts.

So just wanted to know your thoughts on Struts 2. Is it good or bad? If you are asked to suggest a framework for a web project (AJAX enable with back end database actions), which one will you suggest?

Thanks in advance for all your comments.

Good is relative term. What is good for my requirement may be disaster in your case.

Anyway, IMO if you want me to select an MVC framework for a new Application I would choose Spring. I have worked with Struts1.2 and little bit on Struts2 but I did not find any compelling reason to choose Struts2 over Spring. But thatz just me. Its my personal opinion

The article linked to is over two years old and says almost nothing about Struts. The few comments there seem to be about Struts 1.

Struts 2 has very tight Spring integration. I prefer S2 over Spring MVC, although the latest Spring MVC has some significant improvements.

How about Struts 2 vs JSF?

Which framework do you think will win in the long run?

I have not much worked on JSF but whatever my encounter had been with it, had been troublesome with the layouts and gui stuff, I feel there is much more abstraction. May be you would have a different experience.

Thanks a lot for your comments.

How about this approach? Struts 2 for the Front end control and Spring for the database operation and IoC. Any comments on this?

Can anybody give some references/links for integrating Spring and Struts 2?
