It would seem to me that their jobs are harder as they need to learn some new tags, but their jobs are easier as they can harness the logic behind those tags (that they perhaps didn't have to write).
Also, their usual WISYWIG HTML editors might not like some of those Struts tags. So, in that regard, perhaps their jobs are made a bit more difficult. That difficulty might be easily overcome by locating some new tool, which they'd then have to learn, adding a little bit of work. [ July 28, 2004: Message edited by: Dirk Schreckmann ]
It really depends on the skill of your web-designers. Pure HTML developers will have some problems using the Struts tags particularly because WSYWIG tools do not render the tags properly.
However, if your web developers do a great deal of their editing via the actual source, the Struts tags are extremely powerful. At a previous client we wrote almost all of our JSP code with nothing but tags. Only rarely did we ever have to resort to JSPs.

this is supposed to be a surprise, but it smells like a tiny ad:
