Struts WEB Project

As struts becomes much more common place it would be nice to have a default struts web application available. This would allow a default web application with default struts config files and libraries.

Well, an IntelliJ Struts Plug-in like the one for IBM's WSAD would be
very cool and productive, but who's gonna write it :).

How would this be different than the 'struts-blank.war' thats delivered with Struts (in the webapps directory)?

While I could say that struts isn't exactly "growing each day" anymore (true a couple of years ago, not anymore) to start another flame war, I'll refrain from it...

Instead, I'll just use a stronger argument: the only reason to provide this template project would add "Out-of-the box Sruts Integration" to IDEA's feature chart, but we all know there's much more than a template project to really integrate struts in the IDE -- and thankfully, I don't think JetBrains is the kind of company that would add blanket marketing statements on a feature chart.

To tie it up, the official struts download already comes with such application. There's no need for your IDE to bundle yet another.

If you just started with Struts, I recommend you to switch
to another framework (any of them) right now.

+We need a war
If we think we need a war

A war to make us feel safe
A war to make'em feel sorry
Whoever they are+

And right now 'they' are the struts users. Come on, these forums have been too quiet lately ;)

Spring


Tapestry. Or, preferrably, both.

My choice is Wicket. I also have my own extensions for
Struts to make life with it bearable and to make it behave
almost like JSF, but without need to learn new framework.

Everyone other's choice is JSF, or Spring, or JSF+Spring or
Shale, which is JSF with controller updates partly pulled
from Spring.

If you haven't noticed, Struts is not at war, everybody else
is. That is why Struts will be conquered without a single
shot. In less than a year, my bet. It is a pity, because I
finally made it liveable for myself.

Well thanks. Fair enough on all accounts. :D How about something that makes more sense such as create a new project from a WAR file.

Perhaps create the resources directory and move things from the WAR to the appropriate places that would make IDEA happy as well as conform to the standard setup.

As far as the Spring/JSF/Shale/etc... bits go. I have to admit struts isnt the greatest but I am using it at work so having to copy bits from the struts-blank.war each time I create a new project was simply getting tedious. If there were a create web project from WAR option that would go away instanty and it could very easily be used for non-struts configured WARs.

In retrospect I think that feature would make a lot of people happy.
