Java Web Frameworks Comparison

Managing a MongoDB deployment? Take a load off and live migrate to MongoDB Atlas, the official automated service, with little to no downtime.

As a part of ongoing effort of comparing Java web frameworks I added JSF to the list on http://jtomato.sourceforge.net.

 The following chart shows the amount of code necessary for 4 different applications:

  • empty - an empty XHTML 1.0 page with the title "Test" should be generated
  • helloWorld - a page with the content "Hello, world!" should be generated
  • helloUser - a page with an input field for a user's name is displayed. Post redirects to another page which shows the message "Hello, <userName>!"
  • linkEditor - a simple editor for a tree of links


I also used my prototype JTomato as the base line. 

My conclusions are:

  • whether Struts nor JSF scale in terms of amount of code
  • JSF is even more verbose than Struts

I admit that that the choosed applications may be not big enough to prove which framework is better, but do you really expect these lines on the chart below to cross somewhere? How big should a project become for JSF to be better than Struts? 

Code size

 

The next framework I will test will be probably GWT. I am really curious how good it is. 

MongoDB Atlas is the easiest way to run the fastest-growing database for modern applications — no installation, setup, or configuration required. Easily live migrate an existing workload or start with 512MB of storage for free.
