Does STSRUTS 1.1 support the new JSP/Servlet Specifications in J2EE 1.4 and along the same lines is J2EE backwards compatible?

First off, J2EE 1.4 has not been finalized so you will be hard pressed to find any supported implementations. Though there are a couple Servlet 2.4/JSP 2.0 Web Containers available.
That being said, one of the underlying goals of almost all JSRs is backwards compatiability. J2EE is no exception. Therefore, you shouldn't experience any problems running Struts in a Servlet 2.4 compliant web container. In fact, the current version of Struts only requires a Servlet 2.2 Container, though future versions are expected to require at least 2.3.

Well, that remains to be seen. I know for a fact that J2SE 1.4.x is not 100% backwards compatible.
Thanks for the response. Do you think that STRUTS requiring newer Servlet Container Versions is going to change STRUTS in a drastic way? Or will it all be buried within the STRUTS Framework but the implementation for the developers should stay the same?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
