Mason and Maypole

I'm fan of expressing business logic cleanly separated from display logic. It becomes especially important for managing CRUD cycles within an application. In j2ee-land, MVC with struts is the de-facto standard for doing those things and it works pretty well. However, in land o' LAMP, no such standard exists.

I'm currently looking at using Maypole with HTML::Mason. But it looks like (oy!) TMTOWTDI decisions are to be made there:

Which way to go?

I don't think that Struts is the de-facto standard in the j2ee-lan. Java community is realizing that there are better frameworks for doing clear separation of concern. Some of them are: 1) Tapestry (http://jakarta.apache.org/tapestry) 2) SpringMVC (http://www.springframework.org) 3) WebWork (http://www.opensymphony.com/webwork). Don't worry they still have a TIMTWODI decision make as well :) It's not without reason Sun is pushing the new JSF (Java Server Faces) initiative to become standard. That's become there is no standard :). José.
