Hi,

Following is the scenario:

I have a web application built using Struts 1.3. Now we want to convert it to jboss portal.

Following are choices:

1. Write portlet classes and copy code from Action Classes and add to portlet classes.
- Advantage : Complete life cycle is portal based.
- Disadvantage : Struts application is no longer needed.

2. Use a struts portlet bridge
- Advantages - Still will be able to use Action classes with portal like look and feel.
- Disadvantage - I am not getting very comfort feeling with bridge as i am not sure full set features, industry practises. I have also read about certain limitations regarding (not able to user request.getParameter() style in JSP pages...)


Please share your thoughts/suggestions/experiences of using bridges.

Thanks and Regards,
Chetan
