Given that that happens to be the naming convention we use for third-party
libraries at my company too, that change would also make me happy :-)

I'm wondering the same!

Would it be possible to name the jar files like so


I know this isn't a struts problem and it would be a bad idea for the struts

team to start renaming the jar files from other Jakarta projects. But would
it be possible for all Jakarta projects to follow this standard? That would
make my and I'm sure a lot of other people's lives easier.

Is this a bad idea, if so why?
I know it would make the creation of build scripts a little harder, but it
would still be possible to create them.

The other option is the META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file.
Most jar files contain there version number in them but not all.
For example Version 2.0 of commons-collections.jar manifest file contains
'Implementation-Version: 1.1-dev' and not 'Implementation-Version: 2.0'

While struts.jar version 1.1-b1 contains 'Implementation-Vendor: Apache
Software Foundation'
Would it be possible to enforce this a bit more?

Just me 2 (euro) cents.

Hi guys.

I downloaded the last nighty build of struts.

I would like to know which releases of external libraries are packaged with

I already uses some libraries of jakarta commons and I would like to know
which one I need to upgrade.

After studying the manifest of jars I listed this :

commons-beanutils : 1.4 dev
commons-collections : 2.0
commons-dbcp : unknown (last dev I suppose)
commons-digester : 1.3 dev
commons-logging : 1.0.1 dev
commons-pool : 1.0
commons-services : 1.0 dev (can't find it on the jakarta site. What it is
commons-validator : unknown (last dev)
jakarta-oro : unknown

Can you confirm my assumptions.

Are all jars usefull for struts or are there some of them used by some
extensions like tiles, .. ???

Thanks a lot.
