- Using the Struts Framework to Develop a Message Board--Part I: Introduction
- What You Will Need
In addition to the mandatory computer and browser for developing Web applications, you will need the following:
- The Java Development Kit 1.2 (Java 2), or a higher version of it.
- Apache Software Foundation's Tomcat version 1.3 (http://jakarta.apache.org/).
- The Struts framework. You can download the binary distributions from Apache Jakarta's nightly builds, available at http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-struts/nightly/.
The Struts archive contains the documentation (struts-documentation.war) and a sample application (struts-example.war) that you can use for your reference.
In the next article, you will develop the model for the application.
