Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

xPetstore v2.2 Released!

I haven't looked at it much or used it at all, but it sounds good.

xPetStore is a WODRA (Write Once, Deploy and Run Anywhere) implementation of Sun PetStore application based on the following opensource tools/framework:
- XDoclet
- Struts
- SiteMesh

If you're writing web applications (and you're using Struts or Webwork) and you're NOT using XDoclet (or one if it's derivatives - i.e. Middlegen), you're wasting your time (IMHO). Of course, I also believe that if you're not using Ant to build your java-based project, you're really wasting your time.

Hmmm, while over at the WebWork site, I stumbled upon this Eclipse + Resin + WebWork + Hibernate tutorial. I don't know if it's such a good idea to call your persistence layer directly from your servlets is it? Shouldn't that be in a Business Delegate - or am I losing focus of KISS and trying to follow too many patterns? Patterns give me more opportunities for Unit Testing. The only way to test this servlet would be something like Cactus, right? As always, to each his own... ;-)

you can unit test webwork actions quite easily because you can set the session in a unit test (sessionAware accepts a map) request parameters get set as getter setters to an object
