Hello, When I search on javaranch for Front Controller or Intercepting Filter, I don't find anything. Althought there's a lot to find about Struts, session facade, business delegate, service locator and DOA.
It seems that a front controller or an intercepting filter is never used. What do you think about those patterns, doesn't they have any value to offer? Best Regards, Roul
Hi, I totally agree, an ActionServlet is a front controller: the front controller is used as a part of MVC. What about intercepting filter, contect object, application controller, Service to worker, dispatcher to view? I believe they are less used. I think the presentation tier is mainly build with MVC, composite view, rather then with an interception filer,... Am I correct on this? Best Regards, roul

Probably yes (these patterns are stuff that one doesn't really need when using MVC webapp frameworks such as Struts or WebWork).
