Struts has outgrown its reputation as a simple web framework and has become more of a brand. Because of this, two next generation frameworks are being developed within the project: Shale and Action 2.0. Action 2.0 is based on WebWork, and though its backing beans are similar to JSF, its architecture is much simpler, and easier to use.
Migrating to Struts Action 2.0 is more about unlearning Struts than it is about learning the "WebWork Way". Once you understand how simple WebWork is, you'll find that Struts Action 2.0 is a powerful framework that supports action-based navigation, page-based navigation, AOP/Interceptors, components and rich Ajax support.
Come to this session to see code comparisons and learn about migration strategies to use the kick-ass web framework of 2006.
