Hello Friends
According to Struts Home Page
it says struts 1.2 is webwork2 but according to
Open symphony it has no information about struts 1.2 is same as webwork. Am I thinking something wrong or these two products different?

Please reply

That is Struts 2.0 is WebWork.

You need to scroll down a bit on the WebWork page (because the merger was annonced a while ago and there have been some incremental releases to WebWork in the mean time) but the information is there:

This release marks an important milestone in the WebWork history: the last major release under the WebWork and OpenSymphony names. While future minor releases will continue to take place (including 2.2.x and 2.1.x releases), all major work will now fold in to the Struts Action Framework, version 2.0. You can use WebWork 2.2 as an early preview of Struts Action Framework 2.0, but you can also expect many other great improvements to be added between now and then.
