Comparing JVM Web Frameworks

A session at Spring I/O 2012

One question developers often ask is "What web framework should I use to build my application?" High-traffic sites (e.g. eBay, LinkedIn, Twitter, Overstock) have proven that the JVM is a great platform for web scaling. This session takes a look at the top web frameworks for the JVM and discusses various methodologies for choosing one. It describes two different techniques (a matrix and performance testing) and pros and cons of the top frameworks from each.

Framework included: Grails, GWT, JSF 2, Lift, Play, Ruby on Rails, Spring MVC, Stripes, Struts 2, Tapestry 5, Vaadin, Wicket
