I’m planning to write a small web application using various web frameworks. This will be useful for anyone who is new to web application development. Also it might help someone to choose the best web framework for their application.
Servlets are the foundation of any web framework, so i’m planning to create the application first using plain servlets and jsp. We will leverage some design patterns and best practices available.
After that i’m planning to design the same application using some popular web frameworks, notably:
– Struts (yes, the same old struts, not struts2)
– Apache Wicket
I hope this exercise will be helpful to understand and learn these web frameworks.
