+<p>The diagram describes the framework’s architecture.</p>
+<p><img src="attachments/Struts2-Architecture.png" alt="Struts2-Architecture.png"
+<p>In the diagram, an initial request goes to the Servlet container (such as Jetty
or Resin) which is passed through 
+a standard filter chain. The chain includes the (optional) <strong>ActionContextCleanUp</strong>
filter, which is useful when 
+integrating technologies such as <em>SiteMesh Plugin</em> . Next, the required
<strong>FilterDispatcher</strong> is called, which in turn 
+consults the <a href="action-mapper">ActionMapper</a> to determine if the request
should invoke an action.</p>
+<p>If the ActionMapper determines that an Action should be invoked, the FilterDispatcher
delegates control 
+to the <strong>ActionProxy</strong>.  The ActionProxy consults the framework
<a href="configuration-files">Configuration Files</a> manager 
+(initialized from the <a href="struts-xml">struts.xml</a> file). Next, the ActionProxy
creates an <strong>ActionInvocation</strong>, which is 
+responsible for the command pattern implementation. This includes invoking any <strong>Interceptors</strong>
(the <a href="before-annotation">before</a> 
+clause) in advance of invoking the <strong>Action</strong> itself.</p>
+<p>Once the Action returns, the ActionInvocation is responsible for looking up the
proper <strong>result</strong> associated 
+with the <strong>Action result code</strong> mapped in <code class="highlighter-rouge">struts.xml</code>.</p>
+<p>The result is then executed, which often (but not always, as is the case for <a
href="action-chaining">Action Chaining</a>) 
+involves a template written in <a href="../tag-developers/jsp">JSP</a> or <a
href="../tag-developers/freemarker">FreeMarker</a> to be rendered. 
+While rendering, the templates can use the <a href="../tag-developers/struts-tags">Struts
Tags</a> provided by the framework. 
+Some of those components will work with the ActionMapper to render proper URLs for additional
+  <p>All objects in this architecture (Actions, <a href="result-types">Results</a>,
<a href="interceptors">Interceptors</a>, and so forth) are 
+created by an <a href="object-factory">ObjectFactory</a>. This ObjectFactory
is pluggable. We can provide our own ObjectFactory 
+for any reason that requires knowing when objects in the framework are created. A popular
ObjectFactory implementation 
+uses Spring as provided by the <a href="../plugins/">Spring Plugin</a>.</p>
+<p>Interceptors are executed again (in reverse order, calling the <a href="after-annotation">after</a>
clause). Finally, the response 
+returns through the filters configured in the web.xml.</p>
