Gateway Software Symposium
March 3 - 5, 2006 - St. Louis, MO
WebWork/Struts 2.0 & Spring
From it's early pre-release, WebWork 2 (the core of Struts 2.0) has included Inversion of Control. This implementation, based upon interfaces, served the WebWork community well due to its simplicity; however, it lacked a number of features. Beginning in version 2.2 and continuing with Struts 2.0, the internal IoC container has been deprecated and replaced with the more powerful Spring IoC.
This session will detail how to use the WW/Struts 2.0 built-in integration with Spring, as well as when not to use it in favor of other integration methods.
