Subject Struts Web Services Enablement Project : version .02
Date Thu, 03 Jun 2004 18:50:32 GMT
Ok, I just posted version .02 of the newly-named Struts Web Services 
Enablement Project (prounced 'SWISS EP' I guess?!?).  Here's the address 

This version I think is considerably more useful, but I'm still eager to 
hear anyone's opinions, comments, suggestions, etc.

Most notably in this version are two changes:

(1) There are no longer ANY required elements to the incoming SOAP message, 
i.e., <actionMappingPath> is no longer required.  It still has the flat 
format restriction, but it should be cleaner now without even the single 
required element.

(2) There is now a Struts plug-in that reads a new webservices-config.xml 
file.  THIS IS OPTIONAL.  You don't have to use the plug-in and you don't 
have to write this config file, but that will limit you to the default 
output template dumping all ActionForm members only.  However, I believe it 
will be used more often than not because it allows you to (a) map your own 
XML-rendering JSP's to an Action so that you are no longer limited to the 
default XML template's message format, and (b) allows you to pick and choose 
what ActionForm members are returned by the default template if you still 
want to use it, and even in what order!

There are a number of other more minor changes, but these two I believe 
begin to make this project actually worth something (my opinion anyway).

Please, let me know what you think.  Play with the sample webapp, let me 
know how I'm doing!
