Well I have to agree with you here. Leaving stuff off is not really
intuitive is it.


I use Struts2 because I have to, the decision was made by others and I
have to live with it, however the more I use it the more I feel that
I've been here before ... writing my degree thesis in Microsoft Word
was a miserable experience, I suppose the authors (of the software)
thought it would be helpful to reformat the entire document at random
... all it did was turn me of Microsoft products for life.

I'm starting to feel that way about Struts2, the other day I wanted to
add some params to a url .. lo and behold the framework automatically
appended all the params available on the action to the URL ... bloody
madness. I ended up turning this ludicrous 'feature' off and doing it
myself. I want to be in control, not have someone else tell me what I
need ...


Anyway, now I will have to spend time making sure each tag I use does
what I expect it to do and not what someone else decides it should do
for me. Frankly I'd much rather focus on the buisness logic.

Ah well, it's all character forming stuff (apparently)
