What web frameworks do you use?

Dear all,

I am using Alfresco as the data-repository for a information platform website. We are using Alfresco's Web Client for the editors and reviewers of the content of the platform but for the front UI we need something else.

Our old system (prototype) was PHP-based, but now, with a Java repository backend, it seems obvious to move to another system for the end-user website. As to features, we need a dynamically built webpage for each node in a certain folder, plus some more section pages. A little bit of AJAX will be used, too, for instance to show a tree of a folder hierarchy (and we plan to use WebScripts for this). But that's more or less it.

There are many Java-based website frameworks available. Has anybody made any particularly positive or particularly negative experiences with

- Tapestry 4.x?
- Struts?
- …?

Currently, I tend for tapestry but lack any experience. So any feedback is more than welcome!

Thank you very much,
Kaspar

P.S. I do not mention WCM/WSF here because they seem to be in development.
