J(Ruby on Rails) is a Ruby on Rails running on a java implementation of Ruby.
  It is a complete stack framework, strongly MVC.
  Documentation and support a real strength here.
  Need to learn Ruby to use this.
  Uses ActiveRecord for ORM integration.
  Ruby templates for view.
 
RIFE
  Full stack framework as well, uses more of a component model.
  HTML templates for view.
  Contains persistence layer.
  Can use Spring for IoC support.

Spring MVC is a part of the Spring Framework.
  Ajax support needs to be added, hooks for this
 
Wicket
  has Ajax support, support for Dojo
  Wicket documentation suffers, not as many published books
  Wicket almost a pure Java code, HTML template based framework, little XML or other configuration

Tapestry
   component model, often compared to JSF
   has bundled Dojo integration, supports JSON natively
   backward compatibility of releases an issue
   has its own templating view technology
   has its own IOC integration with Hivemind (changed with upcoming release?)
  
Grails
    MVC model, much based on ROR
 has its own templating view technology (GSP)
 based on Spring MVC and Spring, Hibernate for ORM
    need to learn Groovy
 GORM – built in ORM based on Hibernate

JSF
  Component based, page-component architecture
  supports Ajax through 3rd party components such Ajax4JSF or other libraries.
  View -use JSPs or other view implemetnations such as JSFTemplate or most commonly Facelets
 
Struts 2
  MVC architecture, view/controller architecture
  Ajax support via GWT integration (need to know GWT)
  View – use JSP, velocity

  Complexity hurts JSF.
  Struts 2 can be used with JSF as the ‘view’, more limited documentation but can be done
