Hello, there! programmer comrades !

I have witnessed the evolution of Struts, and I consider it the best implementation of the MVC Design pattern for Web Apps, but I always felt that having to Associate every Struts Action to a FormBean was kinda 'clumsy'.
I understand now that in Struts 2, they have supressed the FormBeans...
Do you think that was a wise decision? or was there actually a specific purpose for the Bean to carry out?

And I suppose this means that the XML structure of the struts-config.xml, has also been changed... Is it now Simplified ?

I hope my question is worthy of your time,

I agree. Here's the link:
