Subject [jira] [Created] (WW-4166) Allow "class" attribute on Struts tags
Date Fri, 02 Aug 2013 11:39:49 GMT
Eric Lentz created WW-4166:

             Summary: Allow "class" attribute on Struts tags
                 Key: WW-4166
             Project: Struts 2
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Other
            Reporter: Eric Lentz
            Priority: Trivial

In building a JSP, and working on web related things outside of the Java environment, there
are lots of tags which all receive the "class" attribute. The Struts developer must _remember_
to call the attribute cssClass instead. Typing muscle memory drives me to half of the time
typing "class" instead, which leads to HTML which reads, 'class="class java.util.HashMap"'

Why not just allow "class" like the rest of the HTML world? Why do we need to be different?
I have a billion things to remember when web developing, this shouldn't be one of them.

We don't even have to to deprecate or obsolete cssClass, just also allow "class"... please!
