In my humble opinion the struts community has not grasped an opportunity
which would see it compete against .NET and other java frameworks. 
Struts should shrink.

I'm thinking of Maven. The most contentious yet inspired point about
Maven is that you just have to follow the 'Maven way' or you won't gain
any advantage over Ant. Yet if you do make that paradigm shift and do
your project the Maven way, the benefits are massive.

Struts should offer a best-of approach, and offer a whole set of
documentation that steers the web developer down that path.

Such a focus during future struts development would allow many
compromises to be thrown out in favour of the more efficient but
limiting choices, which would translate into shorter turn-around times
for struts web-app developers who went along with it.

My 2 cents.
