I've team led and developed numerous Struts apps over the years, some small,
some large. IMO unless the app is trivial form processing, Struts soon runs
into problems. Struts should be regarded as a low level framework upon which
to build your own app framework. The main problem with Struts is you usually
use JSPs, and they in themselves are difficult to manage. Most the larger
Struts apps I have worked on soon find that Struts hinders development and
restricts flexibility.

Architects have been critical of Struts
http://today.java.net/pub/a/today/2003/12/11/mvc.html?page=2 and I think
they are correct.

We have done just one app with Tapestry. The developers generally much
prefer it, it is more productive, easier to debug and maintain ONCE the
learning curve is done with.

Struts vs Tapestry is comparing apples and oranges really. You need to find
a framework that fits your business requirement.
