Subject Re: REST Mappers
Date Sun, 09 Dec 2012 10:24:08 GMT
It is indeed an attempt to support RESTful urls.
When we wanted to add REST support to our existing struts2 app(using xml
config and not the convention plugin), we found that using the
Restful2ActionMapper with the PrefixBasedActionMapper which chooses
the appropriate ActionMapper based on a namespace, was the most
straightforward and less intrusive approach. Existing actions, were not
affected at all, and new actions where handled by the restful2 action
mapper, in their own namespace.
Had we wanted to use the more modern REST plugin, we would have to refactor
the app to use the convention plugin. I'm not sure whether
that's a straightforward task, but back then we encountered a few issues
and gave up.
So I think that for existing apps not using the convention plugin, which
wish to add REST support, the RestFull2ActionMapper
is still a viable solution
