Subject RE: [struts-dev] Re: Move deprecated plugins to archive

i was moving in to mobile-apps when jason rang the dojo bell..

upgrading dojo is real work...Attach Points to DOM..event handlers and dealing with descriptive
JavaScript objects that are named '1a'
then a macro language to populate the values from request..so 
1)alot of work ..
2)bountiful criticism ..
3)little (or no) pay 
but the  payback is pulling in Dojo clients...(so the effort could be justified)

I wished Antonio would chime in but I think he has summer off..?

WDYT?
Martin
