    Spring really good, after one year developement on it. I just use its container, AOP for declaretive transaction, I use Hibernate for persistence, and JSF+Facelets for Web.

    Completely absurd. That’s like the kid who stops liking his favorite band because ‘they got too big’. It may apply to music, fashion, and art, but it hardly applies here. You’re discounting or ignoring the entire evolution of software development practices, philosophies and technologies themselves. I mean, do I sell my 100Mhz 386 because ‘too many people out there are using them now?’, or because it’s slow and inefficient compared to a 3Ghz Pentium 4? Did we abandon procedural programming in PASCAL years ago because ‘too many people were using it’ to write their spaghetti code, or could it be that it became obvious to everyone that an object-oriented approach was far superior in a multitude of ways?

    just when people really start accepting a technology in Java, that technology seems to go out of favor of the ‘experts’ .

    Struts and company seems to have been dumped in favor of Spring. Once the common Java developer learns Spring, I am sure even Spring will be dumped, irrespective of its merits or demerits.

    .NET folks get a higher pay as there are not that many .NET people around, as compared to J2EE where there are 1000s.
