    Maybe what we need is an abstraction over the current request 
mapping stuff. If you think about it, what Struts basically does is 
mapping a request from a browser to some class that then executes a 
method (I know Struts has a lot more things, but this is the main one). 
Maybe we could go a step further, and think about wizards, page flows, 
data associated with those flows, and why not, set the bases for a 
direct translation from use cases to one of these abstractions.

    Please, don't take this as criticism to Struts. I think Struts is a 
great framework and I'm using it and will be using it in whatever J2EE 
project I do, but maybe we could start thinking a level above... what do 
you think?
