If you are using Macromedia Ultradev I might have an answer for you.

When I started working with Struts a couple of weeks ago, the first thing I
did was whip up a crude Ultradev extension for Struts.  The extension allows
you to see struts tags in the design view as their corresponding HTML
elements, insert common Struts tags from the insert menu and convert
standard HTML form tags to their corresponding struts tags.  This extension
doesn't require that you be in the live data mode so there is no real setup
required to use it.

The extension could use allot of improvement, but its good enough for what I
wanted.  The extension doesn't do a very good job with <html:select> tags
now, but I plan to fix this pretty soon.  If I get some spare time there are
allot of nice features I would like to add to it.

I would be glad to email you the extension if your want to give it a try.  I
am using Ultradev4 so I'm not sure how/if the extension will work on
DreamWeaver MX.

Subject: Working visual on presentation layer


If i give jsp page to a web designer, how can she/he can see the actual
web objects ?

For example  if i wrote a simple web application using struts, i have to
put custom tags into this JSP page

<%@ page language="java" %>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-form.tld" prefix="form" %>

Logon with username "test" and password "test".<br /><br />
<form:form action="">

  Username: <form:text property="username" /><br />

  Password: <form:password property="password" /><br />

 <form:submit value="Logon" />


When the web designer opens this JSP page using Macromadia DreamViewer
(also import custom tags) he/she doesn't see the web objects (text box,
checkbox, submit button),
Are there any way or any tool to work visual on presentation layer while
developers use Struts on backend?
