Hi there, I had developed a application using struts 1.2.4 and tiles ( dont remember the version) a while ago. My question is In Struts 2 are there any changes to tiles framework. The reason being I had encountered few problems mainly in exception handling while using Tile and TileController framework for our project. Also if this book covers those changes? Thanks and regards, Amit [ November 14, 2008: Message edited by: amit punekar ]
Struts 2 uses Tiles 2; there are significant changes between Tiles 1 and 2. The Tiles documentation is the appropriate place for Tiles issues; it is no longer directly connected to the Struts framework.

Hi Author, Thanks for your prompt reply. Is there any reason behind dropping out tiles from struts framework? It might be hard then to move from our struts-tile implementation on Struts 1.2.4 to next version.
Tiles was moved out of Struts because Tiles should always have been framework-neutral; there's absolutely no reason to keep it tied to Struts.
Moving Tiles out of Struts isn't what impacts the transition, it's that there are non-backwards compatible changes that increase its functionality. If it's too much work or the ROI is too low then there's no reason to upgrade the Tiles version anyway, no?
