</section>
<section name="What's New?" href="New">
<p>Following are highlights of the new features. In the next section, we
provide links to the JavaDocs for the affected classes.</p>
<p><strong>New Configuration DTD</strong></p>
<p> The Struts Configuration 1.0 DTD has been deprecated in favor of the
<code><a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/dtds/struts-config_1_1.dtd">struts-config_1_1.dtd</a></code>.
In the Struts 1.1 release, existing Struts configuration files can be
loaded using either DTD version.
</p>
<p><strong>New Dependencies on Commons packages</strong></p>
<p>Several components of Struts 1.0 have been found to be useful in
general Java development (and not just useful for building Struts-based
web applications), and have been migrated into the
<a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/">Jakarta Commons Project</a>.
As a result, the current development version of Struts has been modified
to rely on the Commons packages containing these classes, rather than the
Struts internal versions. In nearly every case, this involved changing
only the <code>import</code> statements at the top of your classes. Any
applications that utilize these classes will need to be modified in the
same way. </p>
<p>The following Commons packages contain the replacements for the
corresponding Struts 1.0 classes:</p>
<ul>
<li><strong>BeanUtils Package</strong>
[<a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/beanutils.html"><code>org.apache.commons.beanutils</code></a>] -
<code>org.apache.struts.utils.BeanUtils</code>,
<code>org.apache.struts.utils.ConvertUtils</code>, and
<code>org.apache.struts.utils.PropertyUtils</code>.</li>
<li><strong>Collections Package</strong>
[<a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/collections.html"><code>org.apache.commons.collections</code></a>] -
<code>org.apache.struts.util.ArrayStack</code>,
<code>org.apache.struts.util.FastArrayList</code>,
<code>org.apache.struts.util.FastHashMap</code>,
<code>org.apache.struts.util.FastTreeMap</code>.</li>
<li><strong>Digester Package</strong> -
[<a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/digester.html"><code>org.apache.commons.digester</code></a>] -
<code>org.apache.struts.digester.*</code>.</li>
</ul>
<p>The following Commons packages are also now used by various components
of the Struts framework:</p>
<ul>
<li><strong>Database Connection Pool Package</strong>
[<a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/dbcp.html"><code>org.apache.commons.dbpc</code></a>]</li>
<li><strong>FileUpload Package</strong>
[<a href="http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs/jakarta-commons-sandbox/fileupload/"><code>org.apache.commons.fileupload</code></a>]</li>
<li><strong>Logging Package</strong>
[<a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/logging.html"><code>org.apache.commons.logging</code></a>]</li>
<li><strong>Pool Package</strong>
[<a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/pool/index.html"><code>org.apache.commons.pool</code></a>]</li>
<li><strong>Validator Package</strong>
[<a href="http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs/jakarta-commons/validator/"><code>org.apache.commons.validator</code></a>]</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>NOTE! XML Parser Prerequisite Updated</strong></p>
<p>Struts now depends on an XML parser that conforms to the JAXP/1.1
(rather than JAXP/1.0) APIs. Parsers known to work include the JAXP/1.1
reference implementation, and Xerces 1.3.1.</p>
<p><strong>SOURCE DEVELOPERS NOTE! Ant Prerequisite Updated</strong></p>
<p>To build Struts from source Ant 1.4 or later is now required. This
does not affect developers that use Struts from the binary distribution.</p>
<p><strong>Struts Validator Integration</strong></p>
<p>The new Commons-Validator is now integrated with Struts and exposed
through the new Validator package.</p>
<p><strong>Tiles - An advanced templating taglib</strong></p>
<p>The Tiles JSP assembly framework has been integrated with Struts.</p>
<p><strong>Nested - An very cool taglib extension</strong></p>
<p>The Nested taglib is bundled with Struts and enhances the functionality
of the existing Struts tags.</p>
<p><strong>New Example Applications</strong></p>
<p>New example applications for the Validator and Tiles are now part
of the Struts distribution.</p>
<p><strong>New Contrib directory for optional components</strong></p>
<p>A new directory (<code>contrib</code>) in the CVS source repository has
been added to accumulate Struts add-on extensions that are generally
useful but have not yet been integrated into the standard code base.</p>
<ul>
<li>Scaffold - An extension of the Commons Scaffold toolkit of reusable
classes for building web applications.</li>
<li>Struts-el - The optional Struts-el taglib makes it easy to use Struts
with JSTL (container with servlet 2.3 support required). </li>
</ul>
<p>The source for these components is available in the Struts source
distribution. Binary distributions may also be made available with the Struts
download area. As optional components, these products have their own
release cycles.</p>
<p><strong>Action Package Additions</strong></p>
<p>The following new features have been added to the basic controller
framework [<code>org.apache.struts.action</code>]:</p>
<ul>
<li>The ActionServlet now provides support for modular Struts applications and
sports several new extension points.</li>
<li>The new <code>ActionMessages</code> class will support a superset of
the capabilities of <code>ActionErrors</code>, and will be useful as
a collection of general purpose messages, not just errors.</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Upload Package Additions</strong></p>
<p>The following new features have been added to the file upload classes
[<code>org.apache.struts.upload</code>]:</p>

<li><code>computeParameters:</code> Allow a transaction token to be the only parameter in .</li>
<li><code>RequestUtils:</code> Change to encode ampersands when building a query string.</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Bean Taglib Package Additions</strong></p>
<p>The following new features have been added to the
<em>struts-bean</em> custom tag library
[<code>org.apache.struts.taglib.bean</code>]:</p>
<ul>
<li><code>&lt;bean:write></code>: Add format, locale and bundle attributes to support formatting values according to current
user locale, format string from attribute or format string from string resources.</li>
<li><code>&lt;bean:cookie>, &lt;bean:header>, or &lt;bean:parameter>:</code> Correct the generated scripting variable type when tag is used with the "multiple" attribute.</li>
<li><code>&lt;bean:message&gt;:</code> Added <code>name</code>, <code>property</code>, and <code>scope</code> attributes to the tag, so that the message source key can be obtained dynamically from a bean or bean property.</li>
</ul>

<li><code>&lt;html:option&gt; and &lt;html:options&gt;:</code> Added 'style' and 'styleClass' attributes.</li>
<li><code>&lt;html:optionsCollection&gt;:</code> New tag providing a cleaner way of populating HTML options from a collection.</li>
<li><code>&lt;bean:message&gt;:</code> Added 'name', 'property' and 'scope' attributes so that the message resource key can be obtained dynamically from a bean.</li>
<li><code>&lt;html:messages&gt;:</code> New tag to iterate through a message collection in the new <code>ActionMessages</code> class.</li>
<li><code>ActionForm:</code> Tag will now call <code>reset()</code> if it instantiates the ActionForm bean. This also requires that the bean instantiated by the tag to be an <code>ActionForm</code> subclass. </li>
<li><code>&lt;html:image>:</code> Added the 'align' attribute.</li>
<li><code>&lt;html:img>:</code> Added the mouse event attributes ('onclick', 'ondblclick', 'onmousedown', 'onmouseup', 'onmouseover', 'onmousemove', 'onmouseout').</li>

<section name="Operational Changes and Bug Fixes" href="Changes">
<p><strong>Struts Configuration Changes</strong></p>
<p>The following changes and bug fixes have occurred in the configuration
files related to Struts:</p>
<ul>
<li>Deprecated (Struts 0.5) configuration file format: Remove support.</li>
<li>Deprecated (Struts 0.5) methods: Remove from codebase.</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Added Config Package</strong></p>
<ul>
<li>ControllerConfig: Added inputForward property to indicate that ActionMapping.input is a forward rather than a URI.</li>
<li>ControllerConfig: Added forwardPattern and inputPattern to help manage page directories in application modules.</li>
<li>Added package to provide more flexibility in configuring the controller and to provide support for modular applications</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Action Package Changes</strong></p>
<p>The following changes and bug fixes have occurred in the basic
controller framework (package <code>org.apache.struts.action</code>):</p>
<ul>
<li>ActionMapping: input property may now refer to an ActionForward rather than a module-relative path if inputForward is set to true on the module's ControllerConfig bean [org.apache.struts.config.ControllerConfig.</li>
<li>ActionServlet: Added convertNull parameter to simulate the Struts 1.0 behavior when populating forms. If set to true, the numeric Java wrapper class types (like java.lang.Integer) will default to null (rather than 0).</li>
<li>ActionServlet: Added "config/$foo" parameter and deprecated several others in favor of components in the new config package. </li>
<li>ActionForms and related classes: now use a StringBuffer when responding a toString request in order to conserve resources.</li>
<li>LookupDispatchAction: Added standard Action to help select between internationalized buttons.</li>
<li>ActionForm class: Modified to use ActionServletWrapper rather than expose ActionServlet.</li>
<li>ActionServletWrapper class: Added for use by ActionForm to prevent the Public String properties of ActionServlet from being changed via a query string.</li>
<li>Action.MAPPING_KEY request attribute: Unconditionally pass the selected mapping as a request attribute ("org.apache.struts.action.mapping.instance") even if no form bean is specified.</li>
<li>ActionServlet: Avoid a NullPointerException in corner cases caused by failed initialization of servlet.</li>
<li>ActionForm class: Now truly serializable, because
the two non-serializable instance variables (servlet and
multipartRequestHandler) have been made transient. However, if you
actually do serialize and deserialize such instances, it is your
responsibility to reset these two properties.</li>
<li>ActionMessages and ActionErrors: The initial order a property/key is added in is now retained.</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Upload Package Changes</strong></p>
<p>The following changes and bug fixes have occurred in the file upload
package (package <code>org.apache.struts.upload</code>):</p>
<ul>
<li>CommonsMultipartRequestHandler: New implementation of file upload based
on the Jakarta Commons FileUpload package. This new implementation is
now the default.</li>
<li>BufferedMultipartInputStream: Fixed lost byte problem.</li>

<li>New line characters: Additional fix for file corruption problem with uploads and new line characters.</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Utility Package Changes</strong></p>
<p>The following changes and bug fixes have occurred in the utilities
(package <code>org.apache.struts.util</code>):</p>
<ul>
<li>RequestUtils: Added support for forwardPattern, pagePattern, and inputForward properties on ControllerConfig.</li>
<li>GenericDataSource: Deprecated and modified to act as a thin wrapper around
[<code>org.apache.commons.dbpc.BasicDataSource</code>].
Replaced by direct use of BasicDataSource or other compatible component.</li>
<li>RequestUtils class: Modify to use ActionServletWrapper rather than expose ActionServlet.</li>
<li>Added error message for the getActionErrors and getActionMessages method.</li>
<li>getActionErrors and getActionMessages: Added methods to generate the correct corresponding
object based on the object retrieved from request scope based on the key passed in.</li>
<li>ActionErrors or ActionMessages: The logic for creating one of these objects has been moved
to a utility method in RequestUtils.</li>
<li>JspException message: Now generated in RequestUtils.</li>
<li>ConvertUtils.convertCharacter(): Will now detect empty strings and return the default value.</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Bean Taglib Package Changes</strong></p>
<p>The following changes and bug fixes have occurred in the
<em>struts-bean</em> custom tag library
[<code>org.apache.struts.taglib.bean</code>]:</p>
<ul>
<li>&lt;html:errors&gt;: When the property tag is
specified, errors are no longer printed if the specified property
has no errors. Previously errors were always printed ! Future
enhancements would include additional attributes to always turn
off the header or footer. </li>
<li>Made the remaining helper methods "protected" rather than
"private".</li>
</ul>

<em>struts-logic</em> custom tag library (package
<code>org.apache.struts.taglib.logic</code>):</p>
<ul>
<li>None.</li>
</ul>
<p><strong>Documentation Application Changes</strong></p>
<p>The following changes and bug fixes to the Struts Documentation
application (and corresponding contents on the Struts web site) have
occurred:</p>
