Down on Struts?

This post on Why are people so down on Struts probably deserves an immediate rebuttle, but I'm too tired and have better things to do. The best reason I can say that I like it - it's paying the bills. Show me a better framework and a contract that wants to use it, and I'll be all over it like a monkey f**in' a football. ;-)

So you ask, what "better things" do you have to do. Well, there are many things better than pounding on this keyboard (i.e. playing with Abbie, loving my wife), however, I'm a sad sob and I'll be here all night. I'm planning on digging into struts-menu and 1) upgrading it to CoolMenus4 and 2) configuring it to allow lists for DHTML menus. Then I have to make sure both methods allow for permission checking, since I want to use struts-menu to display url-hiding security in my chapter. Wish me luck - and feel free to help if you want to get your hands dirty!

If you really want to have some more free time deleveoping web apps you should look at Coldfusion MX, its a single technology, that removes all the complexity of JAVA,EJB JSP struts etc..Its funny that the JAVA route requires so much other overhead (IE JSP with reqiures struts etc.) just to do a simple dynamic web app. Keep It Simple S
