Yes, but not if you're *using* an existing MVC framework like Jakarta Struts.
However, the Java camp is always so keen on writing frameworks but so
weak on usable components and real features -- just look at JBoss
Portal, for example.  Tons of potential, zero features -- try finding
a shoutbox or a decent forum component for it.
I'll take Drupal's transparency and "pseudo" MVC design over a huge
cumbersome framework any day.
