Welcome to the Apache Struts Action Framework 2 wiki. The framework's official homepage is http://struts.apache.org/. There you can find documentation for the latest released version of the framework. This wiki is used for additional information as well as documentaion for the latest developing version.
We're in the process of migrating this wiki from Open Symphony WebWork2 to Struts Action Framework 2. WebWork is in the process of joining the Apache Struts project. See our incubator page for details. During the migration period, references to WebWork2 and SAF2 will be intermixed.
