Hello All,
WebWork 1.0 has finally been released. For those of you who don't know what WebWork is, here is a direct qoute from the Project Lead, Rickard Oberg:

WebWork is a web application framework for J2EE. It is based on a concept called "Pull HMVC" (Pull Hierarchical Model View Controller). The basic idea is to separate the site programmers' and site designers' tasks.
One of the main features is it's total separation between the controller and view aspects of an application, thus allowing for a multitude of view technologies to be utilized. Out of the box WebWork has support for JSP (and comes with an extensive tag library that covers most needs), XSLT, and the template engine Velocity. Adding support for more such tools is very easy (the velocity "integration" was done in hours), allowing you to have maximum flexibility with regard to how you structure your application.
You also get to choose whether you want to use a Model-1 or Model-2 approach to building applications, although we'd
recommend using both as is described in our comprehensive documentation that includes reference sheets (for the tag library and expression language) and many useful tips&tricks sections.

I've been using it for a while and I'm totally in love with it!!
