Hi,
I am new to spring and I want to transfer a Struts application into Spring framework.
So what precaution should I take to transfer it into Spring Framework.
Which are the major changes,I should look at?
If anyone had this type of experience,please share it with me.

Thank you in advance.

Depends, are your removing all Struts, no more Action classes, or just having Struts and Spring together?

If keeping Action classes, just have them extend ActionSupport and inject your Spring beans into it, no longer needing any ServiceLocator pattern.

If moving to Spring MVC, then all your Actions will have to be rewritten with Controller classes.

Hi Mark,
I am going to remove all actions classes from struts and I have to create a template of Spring for jsp,controller and beans,
so that others also can refer to that template and generate application.
So I am wondering which controller should I use?that will handle all types of actions,
as in my jsp most of the times multiple actions are present.

Thank you.

I don't know your code to even give you an answer. Except, one that isn't too hard, but at the same time not trivial.

Also, make sure you are using the latest version of Spring 3.0.5 and that you use Spring MVC Annotations. Use the latest, don't do things the old way in Spring MVC.
