Spring MVC) I don't really see that one is better than the other. In
particular I don't buy any SpringSource claims that their approach is
easier than JSF...I don't think it's more difficult but it sure isn't
easier. For somebody with educational time to burn I'd say try
both...Spring MVC does have the advantage of being part of a whole
constellation of technologies.

Is Spring MVC really that popular?

There were a lot of hype some years ago when Spring
was red hot, but I believe the conclusion was that the
first versions of Spring MVC was crap. Later versions
should be better. But my impression is that JSF and Struts 1
are the big ones. And Spring MVC is just one out of many
in next tier (Struts 2, Wicket, Sling, Stripes etc.).
