Is Shale copying ASP.NET architecture? Is it going to replace JSF?
Thanx,
SUnil.

Well, everyone copies from everyone so I would actually be a bit disappointed if Apache projects wouldn't at least look at what the .NET world has to offer.

Having said that, here's a quote from the Struts 2.0 roadmap:

Struts 2.x (aka Struts "Next Generation") will include broader enhancements. We anticipate that the implementation will utilize the Servlet 2.4 / JSP 2.0 platform, and perhaps Java 1.5, but may optionally support earlier platforms.

We anticipate that Struts 2.x will rely on JSTL and the JavaServer Faces API as supporting technologies. However, the focus of the Struts framework will remain on the Controller aspect of a Model 2/MVC architecture. The core framework will continue to be both Model and View independent.

Target features for Struts 2.x include:

Comprehensive unit test coverage for all core features
Enhanced support for using Struts in large team environments.
Transparent support for a portlet environment (JSR 168), with minimal-to-no changes in your business logic and pages.
Direct support for JSTL/JSF taglibs and the JSF API
Enhanced support for other presentation layers, such as XLST
Enhanced support for scriptable Actions, using technologies like BSF or Jelly
Refactoring for new technologies available on the Servlet 2.4/ JSP 2.0 platform


So, we are going to get more powerful version of Struts, thanx Apache...
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
