Hi all,

I have been using struts-layout for a while and realized that it has some drawbacks (very few answers questions in the provided forum, checkboxes doesn't work well, layout is distorted sometimes...).

I wonder if anyone can recommend an alternative to the struts layout?

thank you.

I agree. I had a similar experience.

It sort of depends on what you actually want to do.
I found display tag at displayTag
to be much better. It also allows you to export tables in a number
of different formats including pdf, excel, etc.
First impressions are that it is a lot more reliable than struts-layout.

kind regards,
Mo

thanks Mo.

DisplayTag is designed primely for table's (I'm using it for tables and it's fantastic).

I decided to return to the plain old jsp tags since struts-layout doesn't 'deliver'. I looked at struts-faces but couldn't get it work, some jars were missing and the jst-imlp.jar, for some reason, couldn't get my project working....
