Matthew Porter and I's Spring MVC vs. WebWork Smackdown presentation was a lot of fun this morning. We had a boxing bell (that I got off eBay) and had a good time ragging on the two frameworks. The only surprise was that Matthew actually ran some metrics on the Spring MVC vs. WebWork code in AppFuse and pointed out that the WebWork version required 25% less code than the Spring version. Oh well. The hard part about this presentation for me was trying to defend Spring MVC and saying it's better than WebWork. Matthew obviously felt strongly that WebWork was the better framework, whereas I like them both.
