Re: [ljc] Struts, Spring MVC, or what for new Web app development

Personally I prefer "toolkits" over frameworks, as I just want the
essential to get the project up and running. Currently I'm working
with scalatra, which is a framework, but I'm also playing with
unfiltered, which introduced to me the idea of toolkit vs framework.

I really like the idea of working with something that makes easy to
plugin your favourite technology/tool in (say jade or scaml for views,
hibernate or mybatis for persistence). It makes me feel like a chef
who chooses the ingredients to prepare a meal instead of buying
something to heat in a microwave oven.

Yes, I'm a bit biased to scala.
