This presentation has a unique delivery style. Rather than one person doing a comparison, there are two developers, each an expert in the framework they're defending. The presentation is delivered as a friendly comparison/debate, which hopes to add some humor in to make it fun for the audience.

Java web developers often have a difficult choice when choosing a web framework these days. There are currently more than 35 open source Java web frameworks available. How do you decide which one to use for your project? This presentation picks two of the most popular frameworks, Spring MVC and WebWork, and compares and contrasts their features. Topics will include:

- View options (i.e. Velocity, JSP, HTML Templates (ala XMLC), etc.
- Testability - How easy is it to unit test with JUnit, with examples
- Type conversion - i.e. Date, Integer, etc.
- Validation - How do do it, stengths and weaknesses
- Tools Support
- Strengths and Weaknesses
