    Default a Web n00b question

    hello all ,

    i'm currently starting a project that will include a website with a database
    also it will get a web service entries once every day or two .
    i recently learned hibernate in order to help me with the data base and i know all about the SOAP

    my question is will something like Spring or Strut worth the learning ?
    i'm not sure what they do from my first readings and youtube videos
    if it would , how will it help me

    Default Re: a Web n00b question

    noob answer:

    I am using spring and i think it is pretty important and helpful in these days, so i would recommend it (at least it shows you how to decouple app layers with dependency injection, MVC pattern etc) and it can be used with hibernate. So i think yes, spring is worth learning as it is used often in many projects.

    But from recent readings and explorations about java ee 7 I have the feeling they try to offer features, which should replace the need to use xml based frameworks like spring, but that is personal feeling - not based on deep research yet.

    I'm not using struts.
