Subject Re: merge Struts and stxx?
Date Wed, 14 Aug 2002 16:24:16 GMT
Hi Glen,

Currenly stxx has a 1.1 version in CVS (under the branch stxx1_1) which 
behaves as a proper "sub-application" under struts.

I have talked to Craig McClanahan about incorporating stxx into struts, 
like tiles and velocity are and it looks like that's the way we'll go 
with stxx.

Right now, it's just a matter of finding the time to do it.
