Not nearly that for me. No client-side editing. No lower-to-upper case support. No command keys. In fact, nothing above what HTML provides, which is why I say it's simply another syntax, and a restrictive one at that. Plus, it has entire sets of tags (such as redirect) which have little or no business in a JSP. My opinion, but as far as I can tell Struts is simply a different way of doing the same thing, and less flexible to boot. And given the fact that they even NEED a "plan" to "minimize changes" tells me that this is just another "Flavor of the Moment". Again, my opinion, but we'll see how much support Struts has in a year. Joe
