Hi All,

I assume ModelDriven is a relation between Action and the JavaBean model (i.e in struts1 Action and ActionForm) am i right?

If i am right what is the purpose of removing ActionForm and introducing this modeldriven with interceptors???

ActionForm is a Struts-specific class. ModelDriven allows the use of *any* class, making things easier to test, easier to use outside of Struts, and so on.

Outside of struts meaning say with a jsf or CGI et al
