From the Struts download page:

Struts 1.2.8 is the latest production release of Struts Classic.

I assume that by "Struts Classic" they mean the "Struts Action Framework"...not the "Struts Shale Framework".

Thanks for ur reply.
I have one more question. We are planning to use tomcat5.5 as the web container and struts framework. Struts 1.2.8 supports Servlet 1.3 and JSP 2.0 specifications and tomcat 5.5 implements servlet2.4 and jsp 2.0 specification. Is it possible to use the above combination ?? Pls clarify on how this can be done.

There is no problem using Tomcat 5.5 as the Servlet specs are backward compatible. When you create your web.xml file you specify which version you are using i.e

2.3



2.4



I've used struts with 2.4, the main difference is how you configure the web.xml, for example in 2.4 there is no taglib element under the web-app.
