Subject Re: Struts or SpringFramework

Thanks, Vic.  I would suggest that they are not competitors for the
same job under normal circumstances.  IoC might be seen as for a
plumbing strategy (architecture), e.g. Action, RequestProcessor,
ActionForm, etc. as interfaces and CoR for implementation strategies
(application).  I personally would not use CoR where IoC was needed or
where AOP was needed.  I hope I am not being repetitive, but I think
that having RequestProcessor as an interface and using CoR in a
default implementation of that interface would be good.  Am I clear? 
Am I nuts?  ;-)
