Date Mon, 01 Mar 2004 12:47:34 GMT
Last time, we asked contestants to recite the "jingle" from The Demolished Man by Alfred Bester
and the "Fear" litany from Dune -OR-  name  two favorite changes, improvements, or new additions
to theStruts Nightly Build since 1.1 was released (now known as Struts 1.2.0 <yeah! />).

The sought answers were:

Demolished Man: 

"Tenser, said the Tensor. Tenser, said the Tensor. Tension, apprehension, and dissension have


"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone
past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain."

As to favorite changes, we had votes for 

* Maven project files (still under development!)

* Tiles EL Tag Library

* Session-Scoped ActionMessages

* Struts-Chain (still unreleased)

Of coursem, we had several correct responses. The lucky winner, selected arbitrarily, is:
