Subject Re: Plan to upgrade NetUI from Apache Struts version 1.2.7 to 1.2.9
Date Mon, 02 Oct 2006 23:11:14 GMT
This seems ok to me (and it does seem like the right thing to upgrade).  
We'd just want to release-note it so that anyone who's overridden 
processValidate() (struts-merge) will know what to expect upon recompile.
