I'm glad to see this become part of jakarta. It seems that of the three 
  things most needed by struts users(connection pooling, Object 
Relational Mapping and Caching) there are jakarta projects for all. I 
would like to see these formally brought into Struts. Of course they 
should be replaceable, but I find it odd that there's things in the docs 
like this: "Struts generic connection pool is an optional component. 
Many Struts applications use other connection pools for better 
performance, especially with high-volume production systems."

It seems that with Fulcrum and OJB we should be able to have it all in 
one simple download and tutorial.I know a lot of this is in Expresso but 
I'd like to have it all under one license and tutorial. I haven't tried 
Expresso but it looks like it replaces several Struts pieces rather than 
just addding functionality.
