Where's the "Struts" in "Struts 2"?

Hello Mr. Budi,

As I know, struts 2 is the result of struts & webwork coming together. However, when I tried looking at it, I didn't find a relation between struts and struts 2. Everything was different, except of course for the name. Is struts 2 actually webwork with a new name? Is there a relation between the classic struts and struts 2? What should I do to move from my old struts background to struts 2? Thanks in advance

Hi Alaa,

So far I also thought that Struts 2 is Webwork with different name. There's no relationship between Struts 1 and Struts 2. A question for Mr. Budi, let say that I have a huge project using Struts 1 and I want to migrate it using Struts 2. Is it easy to do the migration?
