I have been working on struts2 framework recently and I am quite comfortable with it now. But if i start from scratch I have to struggle with which all jars are needed to work on project.
I have struts-2.2.3-all distribution of struts2
Here are some of my concerns
1) Is it a good idea to include all jars in that distribution.
2) Will application suffer performance wise at run-time if i include jars that i am not using.
3) If I include some jar where can i look for information about the dependent jars that has to be included with it.
4) Is there any place where i can get information about for what all purpose the framework is using that particular jar file
I just took a look at extracted content of struts2-core-2.2.3.jar
And In META-INF\DEPENDENCIES file
It contains some information but again it list all jar that are not really required
quite confused right now
