IMHO of course...
Pro's
-solid framework
-Pattern oriented
-reduces engineering time
-easily extensible
-large developer community
-can be used on production level applications
Con's
-sometimes confusing to learn because of many similarly named components
-focused primarily for JSP/Servlet web apps

Thanks Sue.
So its best suited for enterprise-level applications. Can it be recommendable for intranet projects having only 30-50 users, is performance going to be killer.
Cheers,
Anil

Not necessarily

I would recommend it... it provides you with a framework so you can design and build your applications in a better way.
Performance can be problematic whether you use this framework or not. But I think struts (in this case) can help you reduce that risk.

Using the struts custom tags has one con: they are poorly documented. The examples provided shine some light on how to use the custom tags, but as always, the right example that really suits your need is never provided.

I have to disagree with this. IMHO the taglib docs are very good. While you may not always find the exact example you need, the key is that you'll never really find the exact example you need *for anything*. That's why they pay you to write stuff.
