Subject Re: MVC in Tomcat is hard

Hi Dr.Evil,

have you had a look on the jakarta-struts project? At a first glance it may
look a little bit complicated, but it implements a MVC approach and could
possibly deliver a bunch of already written code for your project. Getting
started is very easy, it's sufficient to place (one of) the example WARs
into tomcat (4.*) webapps.

Cheers, Mika
