Sony's new "cocoon VCR server" in Japan has a web-based VCR record request feature as a service. (You can set time-record of you VCR from web.) This product came out last month.
The system uses Struts 1.0.
There are lots of form elements, and the session is hold through multiple forms, Struts made everything easy for the project team. They used one big ActionForm.
The system supports several web browsers, and three leading cell phone standards. In a case like this, Java-based solution is a pretty good one.
If they use Cocoon (jakarta Cocoon. Confusing, right.)for display, it might be even more excitng.
Well, they don't advertise the fact that they use Struts, but the system heavily depends on it. http://www3.mycaster.jp.sonystyle.com/ http://www.mycaster.jp.sonystyle.com/pc0210qd03/Service/atmark.html
Sorry I could only find the site in Japanese. But I hope you can get the feel of how it works.
