Which Java web framework to use?

While I was doing my investigation to find a suitable Java web framework to use in a personal project, I came across this study done by RebelLabs. They have two comprehensive posts on 8 different frameworks -

  • Spring MVC
  • Grails
  • Vaadin
  • GWT
  • Wicket
  • Play 
  • Struts
  • JSF

They have rated these frameworks on different parameters and also on the type of application to build. Search no further, read these two articles:

The Curious Coder’s Java Web Frameworks Comparison: Spring MVC, Grails, Vaadin, GWT, Wicket, Play, Struts and JSF

The 2014 Decision Maker’s Guide to Java Web Frameworks

I finally went ahead with using Play! framework. In some other post, I will talk more about Play. But, for now I did a fun thing. I went to and tried to find out how other frameworks fight it out with Play in the Google battle. Following results definitely show that Play framework is picking up faster than any other Java web framework.
