We are developing web based application, please suggest the best framework either Springs or Struts. How soon can we get acquinted with springs knowledge if we have already worked with Struts. Is it too difficult to understand springs framework?
Thanks in advance
1) Spring Framework versus Struts is an apples to oranges comparison
2) Spring MVC to Struts comparison is apples to apples
3) Spring MVC is a module of the Spring Framework, so the framework is about Dependency Injection, Enterprise services and much more.
4) It is called Spring, not Springs. No plural there.
There are many threads in this forum that answer your question as it is a big question that can take a long time to answer. Please try to do a search in the forum. There is a search box right at the top of the forum.

If you want MVC, dependency injection, AOP, transaction manager... go for Spring.
In general Spring is a giant compared to the tiny Struts.
Just my opinion, and I have worked with Struts. that Struts is old technology and Struts 1 hasn't been changed in many many years, Struts 2 is a completely different project.
I would always choose Spring MVC over Struts anyday. Now that doesn't mean that every web application I write is with Spring MVC, I also really love Grails, well that is built on top of Spring MVC. But even other web frameworks works well too.
If I need REST apis, Spring MVC is so easy to do, especially if you use JPA, then Spring Data JPA and Spring Data REST can create all of it automatically for you.
