Survey Sets Out to Answer Which JVM Framework is the Best
Sebastien Arbogast has posted a survey to find out which framework is the best, following Matt Raible’s controversial presentation.
After Matt Raible did a brave thing and rated the JVM web frameworks in a matrix for
all to see, the old ‘which JVM framwork is the best?’ debate has
been reignited. Now, Sebastien Arbogast has proposed that instead
of arguing over Matt Raible’s point of view, the community should
take part in their own survey of JVM web frameworks. Sebastien
Arbogast’s survey covers the following frameworks: Struts2, Spring
MVC, Wicket, JSF, Tapestry, Stripes, GWT, Grails, Rails, Flex,
Vaadin, Lift, and Play. It asks participants to vote on criteria
such as developer productivity, learning curve and testing. At the
time of writing, Rails was in the number one position, followed by
Play, and then Grails. Tapestry was in the survey’s last, unlucky
thirteen place. Agree? Disagree? Be sure to have your say, by
taking part in the survey.
