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.

Struts Action Framework 2 is a web-based MVC framework that emphasizes simplicity and interoperability.

The online documentation is grouped into five sections.

...

Overview

...

The framework is designed to minimize coding so that developers can spend less time fussing with HTTP and HTML plumbing (leaving more time to work on the interesting parts of an application).

...

Tutorials

...

Apache Struts 2 is an elegant, extensible framework for building enterprise-ready Java web applications. Distributions of Struts 2 are available as a free download under the Apache License.

The contents of the Struts 2 documentation wiki (what you're reading now) are distributed with each release, but maintained via the on-line wiki.

Tip

Have a suggestion, correction, or improvement? Log in and leave a comment on the appropriate page or file a ticket against the Struts 2 documentation. We're always looking for help!

Note

We've started planning the next version of Struts aka Struts 3 (or 2.5) which will break backward compatibility, if you want to join please add your two cents here.
