December 19the 5:00pm for 5:15 - 6:30pm 2007 — Subject: Java Web Frameworks Comparison

Thilo Frotscher presents an overview and comparison of state-of-the-art web frameworks available for Java developers.

Struts has been the most popular Java web framework for many years. But it also has a lot of shortcomings, which have annoyed developers increasingly.

In the meantime, new generations of web frameworks have emerged, and today there is an incredible number of frameworks available. Some are just trying to make things a little better, others are following very different approaches. There's so much choice that it's really hard to get an overview.

In this session, we'll have a look at some of the newer frameworks and compare their key features and characteristics.
