Subject Re: Wouldn't validation be better performed by Actions rather than ActionForms?
Date Fri, 18 Mar 2005 22:02:06 GMT
I was waiting for another period where tons of commits were happening.
 That's when I'd sneak in this one and see if anybody notices.  :)

Now before somebody thinks I was serious (about the sneaking in part)
-- this actually is on my radar.  I plan on digging up the arguments
around it.  Speaking for myself, I think it's very useful, especially
for those implementing custom base action classes.  Right now, though,
I'm finishing up config inheritance.

I've actually been thinking of stuff that'd be useful even without
being added to the core, such as a 1.2 compatible page prep through
custom ForwardConfig objects, and this ActionDispatcher, and the POJO
wrapper you outlined for 1.3.  I'm beginning to wonder if it'd be
worth the effort of implementing them and hosting them somewhere. 
Maybe the Struts SF site (I keep getting mixed signals as to its
status) or even just my own site.  Hmm... something like what Niall
has on his site.  Maybe he'll want to host these.  Think of them as
Struts counterpart of MS' TweakUI, or Struts goodies.

Some of them might just be a weekend itch for me (or someone else),
but who knows, people could find them helpful, if not by using them,
maybe by studying how they work.
