Struts 1.1 + WSAD 5

Hi all-
I recall that earlier versions of WSAD5 (e.g. 5.0.1) had Struts beta 1.1 support. Now, with WSAD 5.1, it appears that the 1.1 jars are the 'real' thing. Is this true?
Also, what production version of WAS would I need to be running to support an EAR with a WAR created by WSAD 5.1?
thank you,

I do not know if it is the 'real' thing or not but I use struts 1.1 with WSAD 5.1 without difficulty.
WAS 5 supports both 4.0 and 5.0 apps and WSAD 5.1 can be tested against either version of test server.

No more rhymes! I mean it!<br /> <br />Does anybody want a peanut?

OK, another WSAD5ish question:
If I develop a Struts WebApp on WSAD 5.1.x, will it deploy OK to WAS 5.0.2 in production? I ask becasue we have seen some compatibility issues between WSAD 5.0.x and WSAD 5.1.x.
Thank you,
(BTW, yes i would like peanut)

The compatibility issues between WSAD 5.0 and WSAD 5.1 mainly stem from the way metadata in the workspace is stored. You can deploy to WAS 5.0 from either of them.
