Get a better handle on Struts actions, with Spring

The Inversion of Control (IOC) design pattern has been generating buzz for long enough now that you’ve surely heard of it. If you’ve used the Spring framework in any capacity, then you’ve seen its principles in action. In this article, you’ll learn about the power of the IOC pattern first-hand as I use its principles to inject a Struts application into the Spring framework.

The advantages of integrating a Struts application into the Spring framework are manifold. First off, Spring was explicitly designed to resolve some of the real-world problems of JEE, such as complexity, poor performance, testability, and much more. Second, the Spring framework includes an AOP implementation that lets you apply aspect-oriented techniques to normal object-oriented code. Third, some might say that the Spring framework just handles Struts better than Struts handles itself. But that’s a matter of opinion, so follow along as I demonstrate three approaches to integrating Struts applications into the Spring framework, and then decide for yourself.
