Struts or JSF by Craig McClanahan

· One min read

Craig McClanahan has started a blog... and his second post -after a quick introduction- is about the 'hot' subject of the usage of Struts or JSF.


For new development, here's the best strategy for determining what to do:

  • Evaluate the two technologies individually, to see if they satisfy your requirements.
  • If one or the other technology is sufficient, go ahead and use it (it's easier to learn and use one technology rather than two where possible); keeping in mind, however, the caveats about Struts HTML tags mentioned above.
  • If your requirements include unique features supported only by Struts (such as Tiles or client side validation support), feel free to use the two frameworks together.
