Date Wed, 12 Mar 2003 19:57:31 GMT
Introducing new functionality in release candidates? That doesn't seem
appropriate to me! ;-)

> You should take note of the following important points:
> 
> * The design goal of this library was to allow Struts application
>   developers to migrate the view tier of their applications from the
>   existing Struts tags, to pages that use corresponding 
> JavaServer Faces
>   component tags, with no changes to the corresponding business logic.
>   This goal has been substantially achieved for simple applications
>   so far; additional work will be necessary for more advanced apps.
>   As a proof of concept, the JavaServer Faces based version of the
>   canonical "struts-example" web application is included in the
>   distribution, so that you can see for yourself how little had to be
>   changed.
> 
> * The integration library has been tested under Tomcat 4.1.18 and
>   the Java Web Services Developer Pack (version 1.0_01), although in
>   principle it should run on any Servlet 2.3/JSP 1.2 container.
>   (It will not run on Servlet 2.2/JSP 1.1 containers).
> 
> * There is a known issue when trying to run JavaServer Faces EA3
>   under the recently released Java Web Services Developer Pack
>   (version 1.1).  Watch the JavaServer Faces web page (at the URL
>   listed above) for up-to-date information on workarounds.
> 
> * The JavaServer Faces distribution is an EA release, not suitable for
>   use in production environments.  In addition, the license terms
>   under which it can be downloaded prohibit redistribution.  
> Therefore,
>   you will need to download your own copy of JavaServer Faces EA3 and
>   integrate it with the example application before it can be deployed.
> 
> * The integration library should also be considered to be of alpha
>   quality, not suitable for production use.  There are a set of known
>   issues and limitations at the bottom of the README.txt file.  Please
>   file bugs against this package in the usual Bugzilla location:

>     http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/
