I've been doing struts for months and now moving to spring. I do some study online but cannt really differentiate between the two. While struts implements the MVC, the spring also divided into the presentation, business n controller layer. So, what are the differences between the two?

Basically Struts focusses more on the presentation layer and gives you an MVC framework for handling interactions from your web front-end with your business logic.

Spring is more generic and offers more than Struts. It provides an MVC framework for using J2EE technology features without tight-coupling your code to a specific technology. Springs and Struts can also co-exist. Spring also provides plumbing to manage related resources, e.g., Hibernate sessions, contrainer transactions, etc
