Subject Strecks Java 5 Extensions for Struts - version 1.0 beta 2 released
Date Sat, 20 May 2006 20:39:34 GMT
I'm pleased to announce the release of Strecks-1.0 beta 2 (see

Strecks is a set of extensions to Struts which leverage the power of 
Java 5 specific features to allow for more productive, streamlined 
Struts application development. Strecks is built on the Struts latest 
general availability code base (1.2.9), allowing for full backward 
compatibility with existing applications.

The current release brings a number of feature enhancements, including 
action-specitic interceptors, additional built-in validators, and 
additional support for Spring in the form of seamless integration with 
Spring MVC's view rendering mechanism.

The following features have been added in this release:

- action-specific interceptors, parameterisable using Java 5 generics, 
using the @BeforeInterceptors and @AfterInterceptors
- added URL, credit card, email and pattern validators, backed by 
Commons Validator implementations
- added support for rendering Spring MVC views, either directly or 
through view resolvers, using the @SpringView annotation
- implicit implicit controllers, allowing default controllers to be 
associated with known action bean interfaces
- added MessageResourcesHelper dependency injector, making it easier to 
work programmatically with MessageResources in the action bean class
