I agree with all the other responses to your question - learning about
different frameworks and how they work is valuable knowledge. But if you
want to focus on a particular framework or two to start with, look at
the job listings in your area to see what they are requiring. Another
approach is to talk to different recruiters to find out what kind of
skills they are hiring for.
IMO: Spring has gained significant momentum in recent years and Flex is
now gaining momentum whereas Struts is seeming like legacy! Like
programming languages, web frameworks get bigger and more complex the
more they are adopted, and then somebody comes up with a simpler
framework because existing frameworks require too much learning!!
Good luck and let's know what you decide on.
