Subject re: Uprading struts2 extensions to struts 2.1.6
Date Mon, 06 Jul 2009 19:00:28 GMT
Hi Benni,

first of all it's certainly a great idea to update our dependencies to the latest struts2
Thanks to Maven changing version is simple, however there seem to be quite a few problems
of which you must have already solved quite a few.

Without doing your work again I cannot compile and run the code, hence your questions are
hard to answer just by looking at the code.
But since this was my only option I gave it a go and this is my conclusion:

1. In the class ItemListTag you should replace getId()/setId() by getVar()/setVar()

2. In the classes LinkTag and AnchorComponent you should replace the property "targets" by
"href" and use setHref() instead of setTargets() respectively. 

That could do the job (as I said this is untested - only concluded from reading the struts2
source code).
But of course you would have to test everything properly.
When you run the sample it should use this peace of code.

The next question is how do we get your changes merged with our code?
How many files did you have to change so far?
