Struts Console version 2.1

is now available.

Struts Console is FREE software. This release adds support for the IntelliJ IDEA IDE, one of the favorites of many developers.

Changes with Struts Console v2.1

  • Fixed bug where the "initial" attribute of the <form-property> element was getting set to blank when it wasn't specified.
  • Added plugin support for IntelliJ IDEA.

I don't use the Struts Console, but it does look like a nice product. I DO like IDEA, so it's nice to see the compatibility. I have installed it with Forte4J (now Sun ONE Studio 4) and it seemed to install and work pretty well. On my current project, I don't modify the struts-config.xml enough to really use a visual editor. I usually just use Homesite or XML Spy - of course, it helps that I know the struts-config DTD.
