Hi.
Usually, when using Struts or WebWork, we use extension mapping to map out actions like *.do or *.action.
Is it possible to use mapping like : /command/ ?

Well, sure , I can have URLs such as :
/command/bookDetails (== /bookDetails.jspa)
/command/order (== /order.jspa)
But what if the path info considered a "request parameter" ?
I mean for example:
/command/aop , /command/ajax or /command/spring
aop and ajax are used to look up for articles files and please note the /command/aop , /command/ajax cant't be hard-coded in the configuration file because their values are dynamic.
Is it ok to use /command/* URL mapping in the config file ?

It depends on the framework. Which one are you asking about?

Apparently, you've got your answer here.

Stripes has support for this with a 3rd party add-on but it will be part of the core when Stripes 1.5 comes out.

By the way, the term usually used to describe this is called Clean URLs.
