  +<b>Path-based action mapping in 1.1</b><br/>
  +One of the architectural advances from Struts 1.0 to Struts 1.1 involved 
  +supporting multiple applications with a single Struts controller 
  +servlet.  As part of the initial implementation of this functionality, 
  +some configuration flexibility was lost: the multi-application 
  +controller only supports mapping URLs to Struts "actions" by extension 
  +(i.e. "*.do") while Struts 1.0 also supported mapping by path prefix 
  +(i.e. "/do/*").  After James Young asked if any fixes were in the works 
  +[1], Craig McClanahan pointed out some of the complexities involved 
  +[2].  Ted Husted described a possible solution and asked for feedback 
  +about whether to pursue it. [3]</p>

  +<b>Tiles add-in to moved to core</b><br/>
  +Craig McClanahan moved the "Tiles" add-in into the core CVS source tree 
  +from the "contrib" directory.[4] Ted Husted initiated a discussion about 
  +some code modifications to "Tiles" to make it work more closely with the 
  +core code base.[5]</p>

  +<b>FormBean: Interface or Class?</b><br/>
  +The discussion about whether the "FormBean" concept was best implemented 
  +as an interface or a class resurfaced, and Craig McClanahan wrote a 
  +decisive response explaining the motivation for maintaining it as a 
  +class.[6]  In summary, designing FormBean as an interface would 
  +facilitate inappropriate tangling of the "model" layer with the "view" 
  +layer, while making it a class of its own encourages clean separation of 
  +those layers.</p>

  +<b>Struts and the Java Standard Tag Library (JSTL)</b><br/>
  +After announcing the 1.0 release of the JSTL, Shawn Bayern offered 
  +assistance towards integrating the rich Struts tag libraries with the 
  +JSTL, which in many cases offers equivalent functionality.[7]  Craig 
  +McClanahan indicated that a likely goal for a post 1.1 release of Struts 
  +would be thorough integration with the JSTL expression language, and 
  +aiming towards an eventual replacement of the Struts "bean" and "logic" 
  +tag libraries with the equivalent tags from JSTL.[8]</p>

  +<b>Steps towards Struts 1.1b2</b><br/>
  +As much of the activity on the list in June involved "swatting" bugs in 
  +the current 1.1b1 release, Craig McClanahan proposed steps towards a 
  +Struts 1.1b2 by around July 8th[10]  The requirements for the next beta 
  +are basically closing any remaining bugs and improving documentation of 
  +new Struts features. Committers responded  promptly with +1 votes and 
  +further contributions.
