Thanks for all the great feedback guys.

Right now its a custom framework (similar to Struts) but uses straight JDBC
and no JSP, ie. presentation is done in Java classes using only
out.println(). It performs very well. Customers who use the product can have
100 rows or 10,000 rows in a table, and several have into the 1000's.

The lazy load comment earlier is a good one that I wished I thought of on
the spot. It will solve the issue of large number of rows. I'l revisit that
with the team.

The impetus for this was me trying to move into an MVC design (i.e. no more
out.println() in the action classes) and chose Struts as the framework since
what we have closely resembles it and several devs including myself have
used it successfully in the past.

Thanks a lot guys,
