New England Java Users Group January Meeting

I attended the NEJUG January meeting Struts 2006: An embarrassment of riches. This was a pretty interesting and information filled meeting. The future of Struts was discussed, in particular details on the integration between Struts codebase and WebWork codebase were outlined. Looks like WebWork 2.2 recently released will provide the codebase from which Struts 2.0 will be developed upon so the two technologies will merge. Pretty interesting to see as well the underlying Spring support on which WebWork is based, clearly showing the coolness of this infrastructure. This was a full room presentation with around 230 participants and it well worth the 1 hour drive each way to attend. Next NEJUG meetings promise to be pretty interesting as well.
