Guys I am new for this and I really need to know which one is best.
I am preparing for SCWCD and SCBCD and almost done.
I don't have a job and somebody recommended me to learn Struts 1.x.
Here ->http://www.coderanch.com/t/444428/Jobs-Discussion/careers/help-badly-please-everyone-help#1977800

Should I learn the same version or should I go for the Struts 2.
I am also planning to learn Hibernate and Spring.

Please help.

Struts 1 and 2 are completely different. Technically Struts 2 is WebWorks renamed. My first thought is to learn Struts 2 because that's what new projects would use. My second though is to learn Struts 1 because there are probably more maintenance projects in it that need programmers.

Since you are looking for a job, you care about the job profiles in your region. Can you share where you are looking for a job so someone local can comment on this?

As an alternative, go to a job site and see which one is more frequently mentioned where you live (or want to work.)

Hi..

All the best for the exam muksh. I don't have much knowledge in JEE stuff, but I was wondering, isn't JSF the
'in thing' now and not struts?

Depends on what you mean by the "in" thing. It's just another solution in a crowded solution space, and massive overkill for a *lot* of applications.
