Subject Re: [action2] Leveraging known constructs (was Public API first draft)
Date Fri, 05 May 2006 15:53:39 GMT
I will return to the boards shortly, I hope :-) But I've been
reading and need to address this:

Please be mindful not to buttonhole Struts into a servlet-only API.
One of the large efforts of the Tiles refactoring is to remove all
references of the Servlet API, so that it could be used in a portlet
environment (as well as anything else I suppose). Struts 2.0 should
be flexible enough that you can run this in a portlet environment too.

By far, we don't have to support portlet functionality in 2.0, but
if we design without this in mind, we will not be able to retrofit
any API easily in 2.x.

Also also to make sure the public API is not dependent upon JSP. 
There were too many 1.0 utility methods that required access to the 
JspContext to get things out of the request or session. 
Make sure that problem isn't duplicated here, because the UI could 
be anything, not just JSP.

Paul
