Interesting timing on this topic. Our company is moving through a working
group process to decide what to recommend as a standard thin client
framework for use by development teams in the organization. We have used
Struts in the past, but we've decided that we want to move away from Struts,
and are looking at other MVC frameworks. Specifically we are interested in
how the MVC frameworks work with RIA's like AJAX, or maybe even Flash. More
importantly (to us) is that everything work within a portlet world, even if
the development team is not specifically producing portal applications. We
have a somewhat short time line to look at some of these things, on the
order of a couple of months or so. I'd be happy to see what others are
thinking on this topic, and share what we come across as well.
