Hi,

Can someone elaborate on feature comparison among different versions of struts i.e version 1.0, 1.1, 1.2,1.3 and 2.0. Struts is eveolving so fast and its quite confusing to point out the new enhancements. Right now there are 3 versions 1.2, 1.3 and 2.0 in parallel.

Regards,

Struts 1.2.9 is the latest production-ready release of struts. There is a beta version of Struts 1.3.5. Any of the 1.x releases are fairly similar, as they all follow the same basic architecture. One of the main differences with Struts 1.3 is that it contains tools to integrate Struts and JSF, and tools to allow Action classes to be written in other languages such as Ruby, Python, JavaScript, etc.

Struts 2.0 is radically different than any of the Struts 1.x releases, and is based on WebWork 2. The WebWork project ant the Struts project have basically merged to form Struts 2. Designing a user interface for Struts 2.0 is quite different. It is not yet available for general release, but is expected to be available soon.

Thank you dear Merrill Higginson for your answer. I was thinking that nobody would be interested in such generic questions but I forgot that there are the dearest moderators at our side for help. Thanks again for highlighting the features.
