Struts and JSF Creator is a Rails advocate now!

Most people who have worked with me are familiar with my distain for Struts (though it had provided a paycheck for many years) and my fanatical love for Rails. It seems that Creig McClanahan, the creator of Struts is now in agreement. The money quote from David, posting about Craig's talk at RailsConf Europe 2k7, "He even went as far as to say that developing web applications in Java after working with Rails would probably not be a particularly pleasant experience for him.".

This from David Heinemeier Hansson, the creator of Ruby on Rails.


The biggest surprise at RailsConf Europe 2007 was hearing Craig McClanahan from Sun speak. Craig is the creator of Struts, the original blockbuster web framework for Java, and more recently Java Server Faces. Not exactly an obvious advocate for Ruby on Rails, but he sure played the part well.

And not just on a superficial level because Sun was a diamond sponsor of the conference, but from months of experience developing Rails applications using the latest techniques and frameworks (like pushing the envelope with Active Resource). He even went as far as to say that developing web applications in Java after working with Rails would probably not be a particularly pleasant experience for him. Wow.
