I am just starting to learn struts 2. I was just wondering, since when has struts 2 been introduced? I cudnt find a date in any of the releases.

Struts 1 is obsolete; don't use it for anything new. Struts 2 is stable, if that's what you mean, but it isn't anywhere near as widely used as Struts 1 (and is unlikely ever to become as popular, IMO). I'm sure you can find the release dates by searching "struts release notes" or something like that.

Note that Struts 2 was WebWork before the rebranding.
I agree. Here's the link:
