Best practice link configuration

Whats the recommended way to specify links?
My pages have links to xxx.do anfd then a single mapping in the config file for the xxx.do to use xxxAction.
Doesn't this rather give any potential naughty chaps the knowledge that I'm using Struts. Should I be disguising the links in some way or adding another level of indirection?
Thanks,
Louise

So far as I know, it would only matter if there was some giant security fault that people could exploit. Who cares if they know you're using Struts if they can't exploit it. You could always change the action servlet filter to pretend it's using something more primitive like *.html or *.cgi, or something arbitrary like *.hireme.
I don't see many people explcitly changing it though -- the traditinal "do" seems adequate for most.
