Web tier: servlets, JSP, Web frameworks: Need more information about MVC Struts

  1. Need more information about MVC Struts (3 messages)

    Is there any other frameworks like "Struts" in MVC? what is the advantage and disadvantage of struts?
  2. Sorry to beat my own drum, but download the first several draft chapters of my book, which are available right here on this site. The link is: https://www2.theserverside.com/resources/strutsreview.jsp

    The review of the book is over and it will be out in stores in mid November.

    There are really no disadvantages.

    If you have never written your own home-grown mvc app, then you may not immediately recognize its advantages. To really enjoy the advantages, you should write one (MVC app) yourself atleast 2 or 3 times, and then go read the documentation on Struts to understand what it does for you. Youll be amazed.
