Struts will never be a Sun-supported standard. JSF is and will always be.

Nevertheless Struts 1 is the most popular MVC framework. Searching for Struts-related jobs at dice.com today returned 2,253 jobs, as opposed to 693 jobs that require JSF skill. Since Struts 2 is much more powerful than version 1 (and easier to learn too), it is a logical skill upgrade for those currently using version 1. So yes, Struts 2 will be as popular as its predecessor.

about the jobs statistic, I feel they refer to Struts 1.2 since the old struts is a de facto standard for many years before and companies still need someone to maintain it.

JSF looks clumsy to me, hope struts 2 will much better solution.
