I'm trying to decide if i should use the MVC design architecture.

have a project i'm working on- you can see some of it here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/Q_22057982.html
and here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Java/Q_22059592.html


I've been reading a lot on MVC and it seems to be the 'way to go' for what i'm doing.  The thing is is that i'm sort of lost.  I get the concepts behind it- but i'm not entirely sure where to divide the above linked code.
By the way, the code in the above two links should be all together.

Does anyone here think I should use MVC?  This application is going to be quite large by the time it's done.   Can ayone give any insight?

It depends on the size of your project ...
I see u saying it can be quite large, then use it.

Using MVC makes the code more readable, maintanable, extensible, ...
U'll have also a more structured, object oriented program.

As an example, I can see in the samples the HTML code is in your Servlets,
it is a lot easier to program if your HTML code is in a JSP page.
And what if one day u have a designer for the design of your HTML's, he will be lost with the Java code.
