Subject [jira] Created: (WW-3472) SiteMesh Plugin document improvements

SiteMesh Plugin document improvements

                 Key: WW-3472
             Project: Struts 2
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 2.2.1
            Reporter: Roland McIntosh
            Priority: Minor

Currently, the SiteMesh Plugin document contains much duplicated information regarding web.xml
configuration.  Some of the information, like the section entitled "Velocity," has errors
in its example configuration (copy/paste errors that incorrectly reference FreeMarker).
* The "Installation" section claims that "no other files need to be copied or created" --
but my servlet container (Tomcat within Jboss 5.1) threw an error if there was no decorators.xml
file in the WEB-INF directory.
* The "Full Integration" section references WW-3296, but any relevant/useful information should
be extracted from that ticket and used in the document directly.

Furthermore, the page neglects to give actual SiteMesh configuration examples.  The 2.0.14
docs had a limited example, but this can be improved by adding a section on a simple decorators.xml
file, a simple decorator, and a page to be decorated.  These should be FreeMarker or Velocity
examples to highlight the new functionality that Struts 2.2.1 affords.

In general the page could be more clear for newbies.
