Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] AjaxTags 1.0 Alpha 1
Date Sun, 01 May 2005 16:48:45 GMT
I didn't see this come through on this list, if it did and I missed it I 
apologize for the duplicate...


A few weeks ago there was a rather lengthy thread (a couple of them 
actually) regarding adding Ajax functionality to the Struts HTML taglib. 
  Well, it's done!  :)   (well, mostly it's done).

v1.0 alpha 1 is now available via CVS at  I am awaiting a 
reply before I can create an actual page on the site for the project, so 
for now CVS is the only option.  The module name is "ajaxtags", or if 
you use the web browser you will have to select any of the other 
projects, then click "struts" as the current directory, then you will 
see ajaxtags.  For the moment, if you have questions or comments, send 
them directly to me (

There is no complete distribution at the moment, so you'll have to grab 
everything and build it yourself.  The included Ant build script should 
work fine, all dependencies are included in the source directories.  I 
just realized I didn't included any information in the readme about 
building it, I'll have to do that, but it's pretty straight-forward. The 
only "interesting" part is that during the build process, the struts.jar 
in web-inf/src will be used as the source jar.  You will get an updated 
version of it in web-inf/lib when you build (the original is not 
altered), so to use this in your own projects just grab the struts.jar 
in web-inf/lib and the struts-html.tld in web-inf, that should be all 
you need.

At the moment, only Struts 1.2.4 is supported.  There is a sample webapp 
included to demonstrate some of the functionality.  I will expand this 
as time goes by.  Also, the list of handlers will grow, but I suspect 
the two most common ones are there right now, so I felt OK with 
announcing it at this point.

Hope someone finds it useful!
