Additional Background

The release manager is Ted Husted.

Special Issues

Struts 2.0 is based on the WebWork 2.2 codebase. Essentially, Struts 2.0 will be the technical equivalent of WebWork 2.3. (The WebWork 2 codebase was accepted into the Struts project through the Apache Incubator.)

For Struts 2.0, the core goals are to repackage the codebase as an Apache Struts product and to provide migration resources for Struts 1 and WW 2 developers. A few legacy API elements will be removed, and a few new features will be added.

The Struts 2.0 release is following the Struts Ti Proposal. Struts 2.0 is Phase 1 of the proposal. A subsequent Struts release series (either Struts 2.1 or Struts 3.0) will address Phase 2 of the proposal.

The platform for Struts 2.0.x is Java 1.5, with Java 1.4 compatibity provided by RetoTranslator.
