Why Spring? Have looked at Seam? How does that compare?
Also if you used Spring can you use Spring only with a spring web server environment or can it also be used in say an Apache/Tomcat Jboss platform?

Does Spring provide any special features that makes it stand out more besides the cost??
Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't Spring cost a license fee? What makes it worth the cost?

haven't used seams so can't say
have a read here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/958907/what-are-the-advantages-disadvantages-of-seam-over-spring

> Also if you used Spring can you use Spring only with a spring web server environment or can it also be used in say an Apache/Tomcat Jboss platform?

you can use whatever container you like

> Does Spring provide any special features that makes it stand out more besides the cost??

I've just found it more intuitive. And I like its IoC approach

no, it is free

comparing spring with JSF and struts also isn't the best comparison, as spring has wider scope than the other two. You're really comparing them to Spring MVC. You can in fact use Spring with tiles or JSF if desired.

What about Struts 2 - I have heard a lot of great things about Struts 2 framework?
I expect its fairly new - It is said to integrate with Spring nicely. Heard anything about Struts 2??

Yes I did some checking and it appears that
SpringSource Framework  is not as popular as
say Struts 2 or Struts as a full blown MVC
I don't think JSF is a full blown MVC. As I understand it its more of a visual part of the MVC. I am still delving into it though!
