Direct the Action<br />Model Components - Access Data and Systems<br />View Components - What the users see<br />Struts Controller Components<br />Struts-config.xml<br />Actionservlet and Requestprocessor<br />Receive the HttpServletRequest<br />Automatically populate a JavaBean from the request parameters.<br />Handle Locale Issues<br />Determine which Action to invoke based on URI<br />Extends javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet<br />Receives all framework requests<br />Selects proper application module<br />Delegates request handling to the RequestProcessor instance<br />One ActionServlet instance per web application<br />Default implementation provided by Framework<br />Actionservlet and Requestprocessor<br />ActionServlet dispatch request to Request Processor(New from 1.1. previous this behaviour was in Action servlet)<br />The work of Request Processor is:-<br />Finding ActionMapping.<br />Mapping Action to FormBean.<br />Creating FormBean Object.<br />Calling reset() method of FormBean<br />Calling Validator of FormBean<br />If no form(jsp/html) validation errors calls execute method in Action Class and finding response to request.<br />If Errors give the errors on jsp present in input attribute of Action tag in struts-config.xml.<br />What is An Action Class<br />Extends org.apache.struts.action.Action<br />Overrides the execute() method<br />Acts as a bridge between user-invoked URI and a business method<br />Return information about which view should be rendered next<br />Part of the Controller ,not the Model<br />Actionclass Example<br />Struts-Config.xml<br />The power and flexibility of struts is due to the extracting of configuration information from across frame work.<br />Configuration file contains action mappings (determines navigation)<br />Controller uses mappings to turn HTTP requests into application actions<br />Mapping must specify<br />A request path<br />Object type to act upon the request<br />Tags in this file are:-<br />Data Sources.<br />Form Beans.<br />Global Exceptions.<br />Global Forwards<br />Actions<br />Controller<br />Message resources<br />Plug-in<br />Struts- Config.xml Example<br />The Model Components<br />Model Components<br />Java classes<br />middle tier components (EJB, Javabeans, …)<br />database access components<br />Used to represent the Internal state of the system<br />Actions that can change that state<br />Internal state of system represented by<br />JavaBeans<br />Enterprise JavaBeans<br />Action Form<br />Extends the ActionForm class<br />Create one for each input form in the application<br />It is just like a java bean, Store data temporary, reset default values to views, validate input view.<br />Hold state and behavior for user input.<br />If defined in the ActionMapping configuration file, the Controller Servlet will perform the following:-<br />Check for instance of bean of appropriate class<br />If no bean exists, one is created automatically<br />For every request parameter whose name corresponds to the name of a property in the bean, the corresponding setter method will be called<br />The updated ActionForm bean will be passed to the Action Class execute () method when it is called, making these values immediately available.<br />ActionForm Example<br />The View Components<br />Struts JSP Tag Libraries<br />HTML<br />Bean<br />Logic<br />Nested<br />Tiles<br />Template<br />Html Tag & Bean Tag Libraries<br />Tags used to create Struts input forms<br />Examples (checkbox,image,<br />link, submit ,text, text area)<br />Tags used for accessing JavaBeans and their properties<br />Examples (Define,message,write)<br />Logic ,Tiles & Nested Tag Libraries<br />Managing conditional generation of output text<br />Looping over object Collections for repetitive generation of output text<br />Example (empty,lessThan,<br />greaterThan)<br />Extended the base struts tags to allow them to relate to each other in nested nature<br />Tiles tags<br />Each part (&quot;Tile&quot;) of webpage can be reused as often as needed throughout your application. This reduces the amount of markup that needs to be maintained and makes it easier to change the look and feel of a website.<br />Template Tag Library<br />The &quot;struts-template&quot; tag library contains tags that are useful in creating dynamic JSP templates for pages which share a common format. These templates are best used when it is likely that a layout shared by several pages in your application will change. The functionality provided by these tags is similar to what can be achieved using standard JSP include directive , but are dynamic rather than static.<br />Note: As of Struts 1.1 the template library has been deprecated<br />Action Message & Action Error<br />Used to signify general purpose informational and error messages<br />Rely on the resource bundles<br />JSP Tags can access them<br /></html:errors><br />Internationalization Support<br />Much of the framework functionality based on java.util.Locale<br />Struts Uses Java Resource Bundles .<br />Ex:-<br />Date ,Time and Currency Formatting<br />Currency Conversion<br />Resource Bundle Example<br />Other Features Suported by Struts Framework<br />Multi-Module Support<br />Declarative Exception-Handling<br />Dynamic Action Forms<br />Plugins<br />Tiles integrated With Core<br />Validator Integrated With Core<br />Struts Sequence Diagram<br />Struts Example<br /><br />Webapps|<br />|sample(Application Name)<br />|__ login.jsp<br />|__newLogin.Jsp<br />|__success.jsp<br />|__WEB-INF<br />|__web.xml<br />|__Struts-config.xml<br /> All the struts tld files|__*.tld <br />|__lib<br /> All the jar files|__*.jar <br />|__classes<br />|__LoginAction,LoginForm,<br />Messageresorces<br />Disadvantages<br />Bigger Learning Curve<br />Not Based on Domain Model<br />Property Names<br />Views are restricted .<br />Questions & Answers QUESTIONS & ANSWERS What did I Miss?<br />Thank u mail<br />
