Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-3933) Provide web-fragment.xml for easier deployment on Servlet 3.0 compliant containers
Date Thu, 07 Mar 2013 19:12:13 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WW-3933?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13596206#comment-13596206
] 

Aaron Johnson commented on WW-3933:
-----------------------------------

If they used the exact same names.  A default mapping could conflict with a other filter/servlet
mappings or expose the app twice (default and user specified).  That could be a security issue.
 There is also no good way to disable the default mapping without specifying a new mapping
(which isn't disabling it).

> Servlet 3.0 specification includes the possibility for libraries to ship web-fragment.xml
files in their META-INF directory to contribute some declarations to the main web.xml file.
> Struts 2 only requires the declaration of a filter in the web.xml file to work. When
building Servlet 3.0 webapp, the web.xml file is often not used at all.
> It would be nice to ship a web-fragment.xml file in struts 2 that declares the PrepareAndExecute
filter to simplify the use of the framework on a servlet 3.0 stack.
