Java Tournament Final Four

April 7, 2008

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, discounting this though for the comparison.
 GORM - built in ORM based on Hibernate

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
  ORM not built in

Struts 2 is a clean break from Struts 1, really an upgrade of WebWork.
  MVC architecture, view/controller architecture
  Ajax support via GWT integration (need to know GWT)
  View - can use JSP, velocity
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.
