Session

Comparing Java Web Frameworks

Matt Raible, Open Source Evangelist, Raible Designs, Inc.

Track: Java
Date: Wednesday, July 25
Time: 1:45pm - 2:30pm
Location: D137-138

One of the most difficult things to do (in Java web development) today is pick which web framework to use when developing an application. The Apache Software Foundation hosts most of the popular Java web frameworks: Struts, MyFaces, Tapestry, and Wicket. This session will compare these different web frameworks, as well as Spring MVC and Stripes. It will briefly explain how each works and the strengths and weaknesses of each. Tips, tricks and gotcha's will be plentiful. Lastly, it will provide attendees with a sample application that utilizes all six frameworks so they can compare line-by-line how the frameworks are different. A sample application will include the following features: sortable/pageable list, client and server-side validation, success and error messages, as well as some Ajax functionality. The frameworks will be rated on how easy they make it to implement these features.
