Welcome to the Struts Framework! The goal of this project is to provide
an open source framework useful in building web applications with Java
Servlet and JavaServer Pages (JSP) technology. Struts encourages
application architectures based on the Model-View-Controller (MVC)
design paradigm, colloquially known as Model 2 in discussions on various
servlet and JSP related mailing lists.
Struts includes the following primary areas of functionality:
A controller servlet that dispatches requests to appropriate Action
classes provided by the application developer.
JSP custom tag libraries, and associated support in the controller
servlet, that assists developers in creating interactive form-based
Utility classes to support XML parsing, automatic population of
JavaBeans properties based on the Java reflection APIs, and
internationalization of prompts and messages.
Struts is part of the Jakarta Project, sponsored by the Apache Software
Foundation. The official Struts home page is at
