             <p>I've been involved with servlet and JSP technology since around 1998.
It started out that I needed a way to build some web applications for several projects, and
liked Java a lot better than the alternatives. I also liked the price tag of open source software,
and started using Apache JServ -- later, getting involved in the project (like many people,
I was whining about the twelve months it took to get from version 0.9 to version 1.0, and
my son said "Dad, you know Java -- go help them finish it!" -- so I did :-).</p>

             , especially the topic of good architectures for web applications. I was disgusted
with the hash that many beginners created when they used (or abused) scriptlets in JSP pages,
and built (for my former employer) a pretty comprehensive framework that could considered
("Struts 0.01 without the custom tags"). It was proprietary code, but I was able to describe
the concepts, and there started to a feeling the lists that this "Model 2" thing was pretty
cool -- but there were no good examples to look at, so it was mostly hand waving types of
discussions.</p>

considered for the future).</p>
 
             <p>The original design of what came to Struts has been in my head for a
long time, since those interesting mailing list discussions, but the first version of the
actual code was written my laptop a Memorial Day weekend vacation trip (end of May, 2000)
to the Oregon coast -- in between watching the surf and having the house shaken by a windstorm
at night. Since then, it has gathered attention and popularity as we approach our first official
release, and it delights me to see my "baby" grow up so well :-). Of course, it is no longer
just me -- there have been incredible numbers of good ideas from all over, and a peek at the
TODO list for 1.1 says that even more good stuff is coming in the future.</p>
