In order to stick my head out so it can be cut off...


Well I think that Struts rocks first off...

But when you compare it to a framework like:
http://barracuda.enhydra.org/
http://barracuda.enhydra.org/cvs_source/Barracuda/docs/what_the_heck_is_barr
acuda.html


It seems clear to me that struts is not as elegant.

Struts does not as clearly seperate M-V-C.

Struts lacks a component model that Barracuda cleanly identifies.


And I think this is fine.  I wouldn't want to introduce Barracuda to alot of
developer's
because it is more complex.   Struts is a simple way of achieving the same
goal
and pragmatism is one of the values I prize most in this profession.

You'll want to join the struts-user list to learn more about Struts and get
help with any questions you might have.  The struts-dev list is used by
developers to discuss bugs, enhancements, and general topics concerning the
framework's development.
