Struts based Approach for the Development of Java Applications

Ankur Saxena


This paper presents a procedural approach to develop a java based application using the Struts Framework. The struts framework is used to develop MVC based web application. The model view controller (MVC) is a fundamental design pattern for the separation between user interface logic and business logic. A strut is an elegant, extensible framework for creating enterprise Java applications. The framework is designed to streamline the full development cycle, from building, to deploying, to maintaining applications. Our research study shows that applying multiple frameworks to design the applications using MVC concepts makes applications easier compared to a single framework. In recent trends, more research papers have been proposed, which employs a new and fast process to implement web architecture and to avoid framework.

Keywords: Java, Struts1, Struts2, MVC, Interceptor, POJO, ONGL, Web, Framework
