Subject Re: MVC Frameworks
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2005 16:17:08 GMT
For my part, I still prefer Struts because I think it has a great
potential if it endorses some move to IoC and does not fall off the
strict web MVC pattern.  I have no time for the event-based frameworks
like Echo, Tapestry, JSF, Shale, etc.  Others need that sort of thing.
 What framework you choose depends a lot on what you want to do, the
sophistication of your developers, etc.
