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.

To help keep the content up-to-date, we maintain the Struts 2 Documentation as a Confluence space, which is automatically exported to plain HTML. We serve the HTML version online and bundle it with the distribution. But don't let the wiki format fool you! There are over 600 pages of documentation in this space, easily the equivalent of a full length book. (Of course, actual books are also available!)
The documentation is grouped into four areas.
Our tutorials are designed to help you get started with the framework ASAP. We offer an all-purpose "Bootstrap" tutorial as well as specialty tutorials on portlets and database access.
Our in-depth technical guides focus on specific components of the framework, such as the Core framework, Struts Tags, and optional Extensions, as well as migrating from Struts 1 or WebWork 2.
Our FAQs and Cookbook examples provide a wide range of rapid-fire "HOWTOs" in question-and-answer format.
Our security bulletins explain any security issues and their solutions
