    well, nowaday, the frameworks are evolutioning quickly untill one begin feeling confused
    i mean if i had to choose the right framework i wouldn’t know wich one, because i think many of them are excellent
    i am referencing struts 2, spring 3 , primefaces, pure jquery, etc.
    the question is what frameworks together do you recomend to develop a big web application?

      Hello Renato,

      Thank you for the comments. It all depends on your application size and requirements. Each framework would have its own features. If you want to have good look and feel, then you can think of Primefaces for its good widgets, etc. If you tell your application, then we can discuss on which framework will choose your need.
