[img_assist|nid=1575|title=|desc=|link=none|align=right|width=75|height=100]At the end of this month, I'll be moderating a Java Web Framework Smackdown at TSSJS in Vegas. I wasn't able to secure the boxing bell I used at a similar event at OSCON 2005, but I found one better on eBay today. See photo on right. ;-)

The following frameworks will be represented on this panel (+ possibly a few more if there's additional framework experts at the show):

  • Struts 2
  • Spring MVC
  • Grails
  • JRuby on Rails
  • Seam/JSF
  • Wicket

I suspect we may get folks representing GWT and Flex as well.

If you had an opportunity to be in the audience of this panel, what question(s) would you ask?

I have a few that I'm interested in personally, but I'd also like to hear your thoughts. If you post your question as a comment and leave your name, I'll make sure and give you credit during the session.

Speaking of sessions, I think all the Web Framework presentations are going to be top-notch. I've asked all the speakers to talk about their nearest competition to compare and contrast. I also think it's a good way for framework authors to prove they're not working heads down without considering how others do things. I have a small glimmer of hope that this may inspire further framework consolidation, but I doubt that'll happen. You can learn more about the Framework Impasse track I've helped assemble by listening to a 10-minute Sneak Peek Podcast I did with TSS.

Are you coming to the show? There's a raffle to win free travel - maybe you could ask your questions in person?
