Subject [jira] [Commented] (WW-3933) Provide web-fragment.xml for easier deployment on Servlet 3.0 compliant containers
Date Mon, 03 Dec 2012 10:23:58 GMT


Daniel Le Berre commented on WW-3933:

The only reliable resource on the topic is I guess the Servlet 3.0 specification, chapter
8.2.1 "Modularity of web.xml" page 65.

The idea would be to have a default filter name for struts 2 default filter in the fragment
(e.g. org.apache.struts2.filter) with a default class and filter mapping.

The definition of another filter with the same name in the web.xml should take precedence
on the fragment:
"4. The web.xml of the web application has the highest precedence when resolving
conflicts between the web.xml, web-fragment.xml and annotations." page 73 of the Servlet 3.0

> Servlet 3.0 specification includes the possibility for libraries to ship web-fragment.xml
files in their META-INF directory to contribute some declarations to the main web.xml file.
> Struts 2 only requires the declaration of a filter in the web.xml file to work. When
building Servlet 3.0 webapp, the web.xml file is often not used at all.
> It would be nice to ship a web-fragment.xml file in struts 2 that declares the PrepareAndExecute
filter to simplify the use of the framework on a servlet 3.0 stack.
