Hello Authors,

I dont know much about WebWork except that its like Struts / Spring MVC.
The book TOC talks about WW IOC. How does that compare with say Spring IOC?. Can the WW IOC container be used independent of WW?

thanks..

WebWork's IoC is very simple compared to those other IoC containers. It makes the simple things very very simple. WebWork IoC has been deprecated in the current release candidates for WebWork 2.2, however, because we don't want to maintain and extend an IoC container when there are more mature and powerful containers out there. Instead, we're going to focus our attention on bringing the simplicity we strive for to using WebWork with Spring and making that integration as transparent and low-effort as possible.

I'm trying to get a simple example running, had the minimal jars inside my lib folder and then jetty complained about rife continuations. I added that jar too and things seem to be working fine.

Authors,

would you mind explaining in simple terms what does this dependency on rife continuations mean and how has web work benefitted from it?

I replied to your other post - but I also want to point out that the required dependencies can be found here:
