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. 

Cheers
Colin.W

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.

Mike: What do you consider to be "J2EE"?

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

Joe
