Spring MVC is a capable framework, and I wouldn't hesitate to use it
myself -- if that's what everyone else on my team wanted to use. The
same goes for Tapestry, Wicket, Stripes, Click, and even ASP.NET.

Struts 2 does brings a number of goodies to the table, including an
elegant, extensible architecture and a kickass tag library. But, for
my money, our greatest asset is the Struts user community. In
particular, our ability to ask questions like this on the list, and
receive gracious, useful answers.

To mangle an old saying: "It's not the nut, it's the nuts behind the wheel."
