I think this is only demo code, meant to show you how you might start to implement the patterns being described.

For a real implementation, I'd recommend Struts. It has all the source code, and even though they'll be named differently, all the objects on that page are in this pacakge.

Hi, Mike,
Thanks for your reply. I am trying to create vary simple Front Controller and my project was supposed to be on the client machine by now ....
It will take some time 4 me to learn using struts ,
other threads on this forum referred me to "j2ee core pattern" book ,
but the Front Controller chapter is the exact copy of the java blueprints example (with the missing classes ...)
Any good suggestion? Looking forward to your answer.
I agree. Here's the link:
