Dear All,
I am trying to deploy and use struts with IBM Websphere Application.
Can I get some info how to use it with Web sphere.
I did not get any information in the User Guide or Installation procedures for Websphere.
Is there anybody who has sucessfully implemented such combination?
Thanks and Regards,

Keep in mind that the general instructions for struts will apply to most containers and app servers.
Including struts in your webapp is fairly simple, and if you can produce a webapp for websphere, adding struts is not a big deal.
I recommend trying it with Tomcat, and then moving to websphere.
Good luck!

WebSphere Version 3 required some source mods to run Struts apps. WebSphere 4 not only is capable of running Struts portably, IBM bought into the product enough to rewrite the WebSphere administration program as a Struts app.
A bigger problem I had, however, was that when I went to deploy my Struts EAR file, all WebSphere would tell me was that it didn't like it (no reason why was given).
There's a WebSphere forum here on JavaRanch, BTW. You can probably get better answers there.

The redbook WebSphere Version 4 Application Development Handbook may give you more sense on using Struts with Websphere.

I agree. Here's the link:
