    Portlet Style?

    Dennis Przybyla Novice

      I see 3 framework in the portlet examples, Spring, MyFaces, and MVC. Which is the best one to use and what are the pros and cons of each?

          These are not mutually exclusive. Right now, I'm using JSF (MyFaces) for the presentation layer, Spring for the business layer, and Hibernate for integration layer. MVC stands for Model-View-Controller and is not a framework per se, but a design pattern that is used in a wide variety of frameworks. Which one is best largely depends on what you are trying to accomplish.

            Thanks agathon, I guess I will have to look at it closer, Not being an expert with any of them, I thought MyFaces and Spring where both frameworks that implemented the MVC in different ways. Which sepereate the buisness logic and the presentation. I stated the MVC as a framework because I thought it was a design pattern that seperated the buisness logic from the display.

            Any good resources to learn the differences and benifits of these frameworks?
