The Jakarta Project Management Committee is pleased to announce the
formation of a new subproject called JAKARTA-STRUTS.  Struts is a small
framework for building web applications that uses the
Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern commonly known as "Model 2".
It includes the following key features:

* A controller servlet with action mapping technology, which serves as
  the "front component" for the application.

* A comprehensive custom tag library for building internationalized
  JSP pages that interact with JavaBeans managed automatically by
  the controller servlet.

* Useful utility classes that can process XML input, as well as use
  Java reflection to populate JavaBean properties by matching names
  in the same way that <jsp:setProperty name="bean" property="*"/>
  does for JSP pages.

Struts will serve as a platform for exploring the optimum approaches to
implementing the "Model 2" design pattern, and will run on any servlet
container that supports the Servlet Specification, version 2.2 or later,
and the JavaServer Pages (JSP) Specification, version 1.1 or later (such
as Tomcat).  It is also supported by developer and user mailing lists,
with subscription information available at

Nightly distributions of Struts (which includes both the source code and
the compiled libraries) are available at
