Subject [PROJECT] Struts Developer and Design Pattern Guide [Community Feedback Requested]
Date Wed, 28 Aug 2002 21:14:25 GMT
Hey Tiago and struts community,

Here are my thoughts for putting togethre a struts developer and design
pattern guide. It is rough. But let's expound on it.

i have not been able to get to this project at all. If you want to gather
resources on patterns suggestions that would be great. The outline is the
first step to me. What does a developer want to know about struts? I see two
needs immediately. A developer guide that informs developers on what hooks
exist in struts for custom component development. Then a good companion to
that would be the patterns guide. A patterns guide gives a developer a sense
of direction when they are developing extensions for struts. So the
questions could be expressed as: How can I customize struts to work for me?
and What proven patterns does struts function under?

A general outline might be:

Extending Struts - provide info on how to extend struts and best practices
for each class extension. When, why and how.
    ActionServlet
    ActionForm
    ActionClass
    RequestProcessor
    ...
Design Patterns - This would display how struts fits into various
environments ( I am not sure how to categorize these)
Enterprise / EJB
Non Enterprise Standard JavaBean/Biz Tier environment
Other - systems that are not standard but blend well with struts

Any thoughts?

    Hey Tiago,

    I am reviewing all of the comments made in the "Struts Community is
going
    crazy!:-))" thread. Especially those by Ted and others about resources
they
    have and the doc needs we should address. It would be good to scour the
    struts resource links outline the needs and post them for additional
comment
    and direction. What do you think. Maybe the place to start is you and/or
I
    produce an outline of proposed needs and then split the work up.
