Dear Mr.Ford,
Since you had hands on experience with the
implementation of the different frameworks
in the scenario covered by your book, can
you give an estimate of the cost each
implementation has needed (i.e. hours,
money, other resources).
Or even better how do the costs of
implementation relate to each other,
in the book's scenarios?
Best regards,
Gian Franco Casula

Gian -

Alas, I didn't directly track that information (although it would be interesting now). It would also be biased -- some of the frameworks were in beta, so I had to track down problems that don't exist now. There was also learning curve involved with some of them.
Here is a highly subjective list of my relative effort for each framework, with top being the least and bottom being the most:
Struts
Velocity
InternetBeans Express
WebWork
Tapestry
Cocoon
Of course, this also doesn't take into account the added features. Tapestry has a steep learning curve, but if offers a stunning array of services. Struts is pretty easy for an existing developer, but doesn't offer as much as some of the others.
