Subject Re: Possible to package struts2 actions/code in a reusable jar?
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2007 22:47:44 GMT
I believe by default, Struts will load multiple struts.xml files on
the classpath, so creating jars, each with their own struts.xml,
should work.  As mentioned, JSP's won't work, but you could put the in
the usual places, leaving the jars for config and Java code.
