Subject Re: Struts, WebWork, and Beehive

I think that this can only be good.
There are just too many frameworks. Struts is still the flagship framework
for development, by joining it, people will get the real benefit of Beehive
technology, instead of marking it "just another WebLogic framework".

My 2 cents.

Peace
