Choosing view technology is a hard job these days

Some time ago, I did some .Net web development. You can say a lot about development with the M$ stack, but you do not have the problem of choosing between 30-or-so web technologies yourself. They have laid out the path for you. Use Visual Studio and ASP.NET.

On the Java platform, web view technologies are flocking and shouting "choose me, choose me",... and we must constantly evaluate and weigh the alternatives against our requirements. There are so many contenders, each with their own unique stuff but in the end, I like it that way--having choice.
