Hi

I want to know in your opinion, what future lies for Servlets 3.0 especially when we have Spring and Struts2 framework in market ?

Thanks

Hi. Well, I think it's clear that most new web development is moving away from the servlet/JSP approach and towards higher-level frameworks such as Spring, Struts 2, and JSF.

However, a quick search on a typical job website shows that there is still plenty of demand for servlet/JSP developers. I suppose this is because there are still many legacy web applications that use servlets/JSP. Also, many of the concepts and skills for working with servlets and JSP also apply to frameworks. So, I think the servlet/JSP approach is still a good starting point for Java developers who are new to web programming.

Also note that many frameworks are built using servlets and filters, so those concepts remain relevant.

Ulf makes an excellent point. Depending on the framework, servlets and filters are still there under the hood, so it's good to understand how they work.

Which should be no surprise to any member who's been around for any time. It's a recommendation that's made often 'round these parts.
