I'd like to correct you. First of all, Javascript as implemented by 
Rhino offers many OO features. Second, you can instantiate any Java 
object from the flowscript, so there are really no limits to what you 
can do, and how many patterns you can apply.

Can't comment on that, having never used Struts. From what I've heard, 
you'd get no benefit from this approach, unless you have a large code 
base based upon Struts that you want to reuse.
