Learning Struts2 (introduction and links)

In my current engagement we are using Struts2 as web application framework and maven2 as build (project management system). In this blog entry I am making note of some useful links that helped to begin working with Struts2 and Maven2.

A good introduction on Struts2 can be found at

To create a struts 2 project use the following command

mvn archetype:create   -DgroupId=tutorial \
-DartifactId=tutorial \
-DarchetypeGroupId=org.apache.struts \
-DarchetypeArtifactId=struts2-archetype-starter \
-DarchetypeVersion=2.0.5-SNAPSHOT \

More information on this archetype can be found at

To get your hand dirty with Struts2 you may find this a good read Getting Started with Struts2 (Part 1)
