Subject RE: Struts v1.3 nightly build question
Date Sat, 12 Feb 2005 19:15:49 GMT

I'm not on the dev list (I might join if no one shushes me. LOL)p so I'll
ask this on the user list: I like the concept of Niall's "extends" validator
chaining capabilities.  I mention it because I'm thinking of using it.  Do
you know of any plans to add it to the v1.3 build?  Niall's link is:

Subject: Re: Struts v1.3 nightly build question

By the way:

While I want to strongly encourage people to start using the 1.3
code, anyone who chooses to do so should be aware that this is under
active development.  The last thing I want to do is cut a release of
Struts with stuff that really isn't necessary and then be stuck
deprecating and waiting for a "safe" time to remove things.

Specifically, I think that there's a good chance that the command
implementation classes will change.  I think that if we introduce the
"ActionContext" class more widely throughout Struts, we will be able
to remove many of the cases which currently require a separation
between the o.a.s.chain.commands.generic.Abstract* and the concrete
implementations in o.a.s.c.c.c.g.servlet.  Of course, we'll update
the default chain when we do this, but if you are also adding
commands to the request processing cycle, you will have to keep up
with this stuff yourself.  (This then, is a strong warning that if
you are using commons-chain for actions, you should use your own
chain-config.xml files for those commands, rather than mingling them
with the "struts" catalog.
