No harm, no foul. Cubbies are still winning <grin>. I know that Struts is not JSP, but whenever people extol the virtues of Struts they seem inevitably to wander into the land of taglibs. I don't like taglibs, especially custom taglibs, because it's more crap I have to make sure is installed correctly. With pure JSP/servlet using scriptlets, I don't have to worry about that. Over the years, the biggest problems I have seen with using open source packages is the incompatibilities from one release to the next (Xerces used to be infamous for this). So I'm Joe Enduser, and I have to not only make sure I've downloaded the jar files, but also that they're the correct VERSION of the jar files... anyway, I digress. My point is that Struts is fine, but no silver bullet. Nothing extraordinary about it, it's a nice MVC implementation. There are others. But to say that Struts is good and "not Struts" is bad just goes against my grain. Or to say vice versa, for that matter! Joe
