Subject Re: Struts vs JSF (poll?)
Date Mon, 25 Aug 2008 17:00:18 GMT
If you are starting from scratch I would not bother with JSF and don't 
even waste your time with Struts. Take a look at a framework called 
Wicket. It's a component based, event driven framework that is very easy 
to work with and fast to develop with. No crazy JSP tags to worry about 
either just plain HTML. It has a large community and a helpful mailing 
list. I have been very happy with it.

Hope this helps you.

this old article [1].  Which are are deployed mostly on your TC server(s)/cluster(s)?  If
any Java developers are on this list, which platform API do you prefer for quick development
(to meet deadline), performance, security management (user authentication and level restriction)
etc... since both are based on MVC despite their different implementations(?).

why is there not a JSR for Struts now (just curious)?

or Others (please list)?  I'm somewhat disappointed Netbeans support for JSF and Struts in
that Netbeans bundled libs support used older Apache Commons lib version (even for the current
v6.1), although this could be updated but I don't know whether it will break the integration
of Netbeans' VWP.  Even the tutorial/trails on NetBeans site regarding Struts (although this
can be compensated at Struts' web site) is very limited perhaps because of the (biased?) Struts
weak integration to favor or push more on JSF/Visual JSF?

the performance of Netbeans is getting worse by every release comparing to Eclipse.  As for
server, I've decided already ;)
