Experience with Struts & multiple client types?

Hi,

Does anyone have experience accessing a Struts-based application using different client technologies (Browser, Swing, Rich-Client-Platform etc.)

We want to replace many 3270 terminal-based applications with web-based applications. Many users will just want to access information (Browser) but some will need to perform many update actions. I think the browser environment is not comfortable enough for that kind of action and we're thinking of a Swing or RCP front-end for those (in-house) users.

Comments anyone?

Thanks
Paul

I guess Structs maybe currently focus on Web-based applications. Although Servlets does not limit to HTTP, but also other protocols (by extending the GenericServlet class), you can see that the Action parameters focus mainly on HttpServletsRequest and HttpServletResponse.
