Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-4188) In struts tag lib, required attribute removed in latest version ie 2.3.15.1
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2013 14:25:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WW-4188?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13764348#comment-13764348
] 

Roland McIntosh commented on WW-4188:
-------------------------------------

I think using a synonym for "required" is silly when we could simply use "required" -- as
a boolean -- directly, without breaking html5.  For people seeking to use the html5 {{required="required"}}
attribute, they can make their own "text.ftl" in their own theme with this added:
{code}
 <#if parameters.required?default(false)>
  required="required"<#rt/>
 </#if>
{code}

This has the advantage of preserving backward compatibility with existing templates.

> 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.
