Subject [jira] Commented: (STR-2858) chain-config.xml file should be explicitly referenced from web.xml file
Date Thu, 04 May 2006 22:00:19 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/struts/browse/STR-2858?page=comments#action_37272 ] 

Don Brown commented on STR-2858:
--------------------------------

I disagree, as I don't think 80% of struts users should know or care about chain.  I think
Struts should be moving in the direction of more intelligent defaults and conventions, rather
than requiring more configuration. In fact, I'd like to see it possible to not require a struts-config.xml
at all, instead defaulting to a wildcarded config file covering most basic patterns.  That
isn't quite possible today, but it could be in the near future once we get 1.3.3 out.

instead of using the one buried in the classpath at org/apache/struts/chain/chain-config.xml.
As a consequence, all samples should explicitly refer to chain-config.xml file from web.xml.
> I believe that this will allow to better undertand the inner workings of chain, and to
decrease amount of "magic".
