Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: Getting Started with J2EE on the Web
Can someone please point me in the right direction as far as a J2EE web framework? There seem to be so many to choose from and I have been asked to figure out how to best port and implement a massive Cold Fusion web application to J2EE. I have checked out a few frameworks: Wicket,Tapestry, etc., but without the Java knowledge I really don't know what to look for.

I have no idea where to start. The porting of the application will be sort of "back burner" for a while. The company does not want to hire any real Java programmers, and so have left it up to me to become an expert. Don't get me wrong, I am looking forward to the challenge, but I know it will be difficult. I have been programming in PERL and C for 10 years and I will need all the help I can get.
You could start with struts-spring-hibernate framework as explained in
Agreeably, struts is no longer the only framework available and there are scores of better ones. But struts is very well documented and there are scores of books available. Once you understand struts you will be in a better position to choose a better framework if you want to.
