Is Tapestry "The" Web Framework?

Gregg Bolinger thinks so. I'm glad he's having such a good time with Tapestry!

Tapestry is the healthiest branch of Java Web development, this is for sure. JSF, this "rising star" is so... not very well thought through, let's say. I have chosen Tapestry for my university work and am studying it and using it for my projects for already almost a year.

As a part of this work, I am comparing it to Struts and JSF, reproducing the fragments of my BIG Tapestry app using these two. By now the conclusion is Tapestry is unrivalled in:

1) Presentation/logic separation (and without literally embodying MVC, by the way).

2) Component development.

3) Error reporting

It equal to the best in i18n. User input validation was limited in Tapestry 3, but in Tapestry 4 it is superb.

It is THE Framework, and it is a shame that it is not publicised enough. It should be more publicised.

I am actually surprised what a pain JSF is. Especially compared to Tapestry...
