>                 Key: WW-3381
>                 URL:
>             Project: Struts 2
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Plugin - SiteMesh
>    Affects Versions: 2.1.8
>            Reporter: Philipp Leusmann
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: Future

> In my case this issue is occuring when trying to decorate static content with sitemesh,
but it generally is more an struts-core ActionMapper issue. 
> I was trying to decorate plain html files using the sitemesh-plugin.
> I expected it to work using the empty-string action mapper, and thus added a link to
/decorated_html/foo.html . The reslut was an error page since all the variables in the template
could not be resolved, due to a missing action.
> If org.apache.struts2.dispatcher.mapper.DefaultActionMapper.dropExtension(String, ActionMapping)
would not return null for any url containing a dot but no slash and no supported action-extension
after it, it would have worked.
> By looking at the tests, I found that the returned null was expected behaviour introduced
for WW-2163.
> I think to resolve this issue it would have been better to promote more sofisticated
filter mappings in the web.xml to avoid the empty action side effects described in a previous
> In my case it would be sufficient to use filter mappings

> <url-pattern>*.action</url-pattern>
