mahendran commented on WW-4188:
-------------------------------

For html5 compatibility, they (apache)should introduce a new attribute by the name "mandatory".
This makes the every one to understand clear also provides backward compatibility. Hope apache
realize the importance of backward compatibility soon as many applications are ending up with
same problem and knocking their door for solution. :) :)

> we are using struts 2.0.5 and 2.3.4.1 in our applications. And we decided to migrate
to 2.3.15.1 to get the security fixes.
> we use struts tags to render UI components and using 'required' attribute to get the
'*' along with the components.
> In the version 2.3.15.1, the attribute required is dropped, and we need to change to
requiredLabel to get the same effect, this increases migration&testing effort for a application
which has 1000+pages
> Hence we require a backward compatibility for 'required' attribute in struts tags.
> Also nowhere in the migration document this information is specified. This makes the
struts migration as block-box. Hence we require a proper migration document which should specify
what are all the changes required in the application to migrate the struts.
> But we managed to get the '*' in UI by replacing UIBean.class,AbsctactUITag.class and
struts.tld from 2.3.4.1 version.
