Struts is downloaded from the Jakarta Project at http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/.
The download address for the current version - 1.0.2 - is http://jakarta.apache.org/builds/jakarta-struts/release/v1.0.2.
The simplest way to install Struts is to copy a small Struts application, packed
in "struts-blank.war", from the download file to your Servlet
container. If you're using Tomcat
and many other servlet containers you place the war-file in the "webapps"
folder and you now only need to restart your server and you'll have
"struts-blank" running. On Tomcat you can check your installation with
this URL: http://localhost:8080/struts-blank/index.jsp.
The download contains an "install" file which contains installation
tips for several containers.
This should emphasize that Struts can be seen as the core of a normal servlet
application - it's not a modification to your servlet container or anything like
While picking up the struts-blank application you might as well take and
install the "struts-documentation.war" application, which contains a
lot of Struts documentation - for example the User Guide.
