Mike, I had a little look at struts. Seems far too complex for simple SQL queries from a JSP, from my way of thinking. I am mostly creating simple database queries for use on our intranet, so don't really need anything too complex. I've tried to use the JSP/JSPSQL generator from WDSC v5.0, but this seems to throw an error when running the JSPs occasionally. Not good to have a wizard that generates buggy code! So ive fallen back to using the wizard to generate a JSP that uses a bean for database access / complex stuff.

(was RE: [WEB400] Re: InfoWorld: "Developers show their independents treak , favoring Web-based apps") What do I consider to be "J2EE"? Good question. I'd have to say that I'm not really sure. For starters, a web app server that supports at least most of the J2EE standard (either Tomcat or WAS Express). Now, as for whether we'll use servlets/JSP's, Struts, JSF or something else, I really don't know. JSF *sounds* interesting (especially given that I've done some playing around with ASP.NET's WebMatrix, and JSF seems to want to support a similar toolkit), but all my guys and I are perfectly happy writing HTML by hand. The whole division between programmer and HTML author is pretty blurry around here. So I wonder if that's really worthwhile for us. Now I've read a whole lot about Struts and even took a lab at the Websphere Technical Conference. JSP custom tags look nice, but are they specific to Struts (I keep hearing them mentioned in conjunction with each other)? What is the advantage to Struts vs. servlets/JSP? How will it make me and my people more productive? What are you guys out there using? Mike E.

Servlets and JSPs, perhaps with a framework such as Struts or JSF? Or are you looking at going the whole EJB route?
