Subject Any experienced struts users out there?
Date Wed, 02 May 2001 18:03:27 GMT
I keep seeing references to using the Struts framework.  I'm curious if
anyone has used this for a commercial product and can give me some
feedback.  I'm considering it, but it just seems a little "heavy". I've
been reading about it a bit and it seems that in order to use this
software you need jar files, a bunch of tag-libs, some configuration
files, etc.  Also, when developing with it, you need to generate a
plethora of application files, one bean for each form, one action class
for every action, not to mention business logic beans and jsp files.
Isn't this a little much just to functionally separate out the
components of your software.  Can someone offer some advice.

Thanks alot,
Brett Procek

Subject: Re: Form validation

I'm going to check out strust today for this form stuff. Although I've
fixed it using a simple error substitution tag and using the Input
taglib, I
have similar projects coming up I might us it with.

I emailed the guy and he seems to be in the process of writing a
license for the form code. I'll let you know what it looks like

I've added this to my list of things to look at. All I need now is some
this slack time I've been hearing about in project management books....
