  • Various changes to ConfigurationManager
    • ConfigurationManager is no longer a static factory. It is now an instance created through Dispatcher. Custom configuration could be done through DispatcherListener.
    • Custom configuration to ConfigurationManager and Configuration cannot be done statically anymore, instead use Dispatcher's DispatcherListener to achieve the same effect.
  • The prepare interceptor now uses reflection to call prepare_Method_ where method is the action method configured for the particular action in struts.xml.
    Code Block
       <action name="myAction" method="insert" ....>
         .....
       </action>
    
       // with the above configuration, and PrepareInterceptor in play, 
       // callsequence will be 
       1] prepareInsert() (If it exists)
       2] prepare() (Unless Interceptor's alwaysInvokePrepare parameter is set to false)
       3] insert()
    
  • DefaultWorkflowInterceptor (named workflow in struts-default.xml) now uses reflection to call validateMethod on the action class that implements Validateable interface where method is the action method configured for the particular action in struts.xml.
    Code Block
    <action name="myAction" method="insert" ...>
           ...
        </action>
    
        // with the above configuration, and DefaultWorkflowInterceptor in play, 
        // call sequence for action that implements Validateable interface will be 
        1] validateInsert()
        2] validate() (unless Interceptor's alwaysInvokeValidate parameter is set to false)
        3] insert()
    
  • The tooltip library used by the xhtml theme was replaced by Dojo's tooltip component.
  • Datepicker tag has been renamed to datetimepicker and is now using dojo 's (limited in terms functionality and internationalization)
  • Tiles integration plugin is available.
  • Wildcards can be specified in action mappings.
  • MessageStoreInterceptor is introduced to allow field errors / action errors and messages to be store and retrieve through session, resulting them to be preservable across request.
