Subject [jira] [Created] (WW-4214) Rename of struts token attribute name
Date Tue, 01 Oct 2013 09:00:33 GMT
mahendran created WW-4214:

             Summary: Rename of struts token attribute name
                 Key: WW-4214
             Project: Struts 2
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Other
    Affects Versions:,
            Reporter: mahendran
            Priority: Critical

we are using struts 2.0.5, and migrating to to get the security patches.

During that time we noticed, the default token attribute name is changed from 'struts.token'
to 'token'. Also this information is not published in change logs.

I request to provide a constant value to keep the default token name to maintain struts.xml

This provides the generic approach to define the token attribute name during the implementation

otherwise this is painful to change the token name at each jsp pages.

currently we are using <s:token/> the generated token name is struts.token

The same code generates the token name as 'token' in struts

there are two options left to us.

1. change the <s:token/> to <s:token name="struts.token"/>
2. keep the old version of token.class in

The better approach is 

create a constant to maintain the token name at struts.xml.
