When I received an email a couple of weeks back from "The Pragmatic Bookshelf" about the book "Stripes ...and Java web development is fun again", I completely ignored the same. I didn't want to learn yet another web framework, and write a detailed review either. I wish I had signed up for reviewing this book.
Just a few days back, I read the article on "TSS" about Stripes called "A Stripes 1.5 Test Drive". The one and only one thing which attracted me to this article was that other than the web.xml file, there wasn't any XML configuration files to be written and to maintain.
I read the article with great interest, and also read the documentation on the Stripes web site. Next, downloaded the libraries and was able to get it working with the many samples I had in minutes. Yes, trust me just minutes.
So, I decided to do something even more interesting which I always do and surprisingly it worked like a charm. I am planning on writing a detailed article about how I was easily able to use Stripes with my existing sample projects.
Have you used Stripes? What do you think about the same? Isn't it a great framework?
Stay tuned about my article as well, I will keep you posted sooon.
If you haven't used Stripes, give it a try. You will be really surprised to see how easy it is to use Stripes.
