Hi everyone,
I have built a struts webapp and would like to add additional functionality.
The two pieces i am looking to add are : SSL and Emailing

Does anyone suggest any technologies that i should use to do these.
For SSL i was looking at SSLEXT for struts 1.2, would this work with 1.3.8 or struts 2. Or is there a better thing to use?

Also with the email thing. I am really lost. Could someone please point me in the right direction of how to add email functionality to a web application. I.e. how do i set up something that can send and receive emails and what jars, plugin would i need to communicate with this sending and receiving email technology running on the server.

Thanks for the help with these matters.

Have a great week.

Hi,
Im not very sure of the SSL, but for the mail, you need to have activation-1.0.2.jar, mail-1.3.jar,servlet-api.jar. This URL should get you going.

As far as I know, SSL needs to be supported by the web server, Tomcat, Apache or Websphere. There is basically no work to be done in Struts.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
