Subject Re: Struts & Barracuda

Personally I would say it is just the opposite. There is more code 
writing in struts than in Tags, which are totally optional. The coding 
comes from the Actions (controller logic). As for the views, many have 
pointed out, and used, XML output instead of JSP output for their views. 
In some cases this may be transformed into HTML or perhaps WML, etc. 
There is even a project started on sourceforge for accessing struts via 
web services (Axis4Struts is the project name I believe).
