Subject RE: [ANNOUNCE] Struts-JavaServer Faces Integration Library -- Ear ly Access Version Now Available
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2003 21:04:10 GMT
My fault, I should have added "Nice work Mr. McClanahan!" instead of relying
on the emoticon...

Still, I think many people could consider the whole Struts bundle as one
Struts product. The line is a bit blury. They are going to look for Struts
1.1 support when in fact they would need support on one particular
contribution.
