I know commons can be used along with Struts for some additional functionality.
Are there any other open source projects that use commons to get more value.
Curious to hear back from the author.

Hello Kishore
Commons is very useful for any kind of Java development. A Struts app is just one of the possibilities.
Commons has dozens of useful components that each do a definite task very well. Most of the Jakarta projects use Commons components. Check the lib directory of Tomcat, Struts...
So it is quite likley that you are already using a component, framework, server... that uses Commons.
Do a commons*.jar search on your machine and you might be surprised by the results.
