Especially because they're asking $10 more for the 2003 predecessor 
which is presumably obsoleted by this!

In case anyone is still asking the original question that spawned 
this thread, note that Tapestry is a more elaborate framework which 
probably is an alternative to Struts, not something you'd use with 
Struts.  At least, I've never heard of anyone doing that.

HiveMind is a piece of Tapestry which has been factored out and which 
more accurately "peers" to Spring -- although Spring has an MVC layer 
which "peers" to Tapestry and Struts.  Yes, confusing.  Still, I 
think at the level at which the original question targetted, a more 
accurate comparison would be between Spring and HiveMind.

I have no experience with HiveMind.  I've been pretty happy using 
Spring as a lightweight configuration management tool for wiring 
together beans at initialization time.
