Forgive me if my question did not make sense but I am a beginner in java web applications. I have been online to find out which web frame work is the best for general web application development. I came across a couple of them but i don't really know which one will be the best for me to start with.

I came across the following
1. jsp
2. jsf
3. struts
4. Tapestry
5. swing (e.t.c....)
Can i please know why all this confusing frameworks for Java.

  • If you a really beginner your best shot should be JSP/Servlets. Head First - Servlets and JSP book from O'Reilly it is a great resource to learn them.
  • If you like to use JSF, you could give Seam a shot (www.seamframework.org). Seam is a GREAT framework to do JSF base web applications.Nevertheless JSF/Seam has a steepy learning curve. Seams involves JSF,EJB3,JPA, so, I do not recommend it for beginners.
  • There are a lot of java web frameworks available: Struts, Tapestry, Wicket, Vaadin, Spring MVC, Play, Grails.
  • Grails is a Groovy/Spring/Hibernate based framework. If you don't mind in learn Groovy which is a Java based language and believe me, it is REALLY EASY to learn. Grails has great IDE, community and documentation support (www.grails.org).
  • Swing is not a web framework thought.

Frameworks suck.  

Use html and javascript for the front end until you need the database, then use a servlet to connect to the database.  Hit the servlet from javascript with an xml http request (ajax).

By the time you start getting uncomfortable with this you will know which framework to go for (if at all).  Necessity will give you a check list.  

Or you will find employment and your boss will tell you :)
