Struts-GUI and Struts Console

By: Lakshmi in Struts Tutorials on 2007-10-01  

There is no official Struts-GUI or Struts Console. Struts is a web application framework that provides a set of classes and utilities to build web applications, but it does not provide a graphical user interface or a console.

However, there are some third-party tools that can help with Struts development, such as IDEs (Integrated Development Environments) like Eclipse, NetBeans, or IntelliJ IDEA, which provide code editors, debuggers, and other features to help developers write Struts applications.

There are also some tools that can help with the management and monitoring of Struts applications, such as Apache Tomcat Manager, which provides a web interface to manage and deploy web applications, including Struts applications. Other tools like JConsole or VisualVM can be used to monitor the performance of the Struts application and the underlying Java Virtual Machine.

In summary, while there is no official Struts-GUI or Struts Console, there are various third-party tools that can help with Struts development, management, and monitoring.

For Example, Struts-GUI is a Visio Stencil from Alien Factory ( ). It lets you visually edit the struts config.xml as a Visio diagram and generate the xml file from it. One of the biggest challenges in maintaining the struts-config.xml is understanding the flow and tracking down what is going on.
