Subject RE: how to configure struts2 for /*.action?
Date Tue, 14 Jul 2009 15:29:15 GMT
I was in the same boat... 
One of my clients use apache httpd for all static content 
and tomcat for all dynamic content... there are several 
Struts2 jars that house css and js files.  If you don't 
map everything to the Struts2 filter your Struts2 app 
won't be as full-featured as it could be.  (Javascript 
validation won't work, any themed presentation will appear 
quite plain, etc...)

If you really want to use a non-default filter mapping 
pattern, this can be worked around... You just have to 
determine the files are returning 404 status codes to the 
browser (use firebug or yslow). Find those files in the 
struts jars, and extract them (preserving path info) to 
the web server.
