struts2 upgrade 2.3 to 2.5 migration 升级向导

Dependencies

Update Struts dependencies to 2.5.

Remove the following plugin dependencies because they were dropped and aren’t supported anymore.

  • Dojo Plugin
  • Codebehind Plugin
  • JSF Plugin
  • Struts1 Plugin

StrutsPrepareAndExecuteFilter

The org.apache.struts2.dispatcher.ng.filter.StrutsPrepareAndExecuteFilter was moved to org.apache.struts2.dispatcher.filter.StrutsPrepareAndExecuteFilter.

In web.xml replace this:

<filter>
    <filter-name>struts2</filter-name>
    <filter-class>org.apache.struts2.dispatcher.ng.filter.StrutsPrepareAndExecuteFilter</filter-class>
</filter>

with that:

<filter>
    <filter-name>struts2</filter-name>
    <filter-class>org.apache.struts2.dispatcher.filter.StrutsPrepareAndExecuteFilter</filter-class>
</filter>

There were other package changes, please read Version Notes 2.5 for more details.

DTD

Struts DTD was updated to 2.5 version.

In struts.xml replace 2.3 DTD version:

<!DOCTYPE struts PUBLIC
        "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 2.3//EN"

with 2.5:

<!DOCTYPE struts PUBLIC
        "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Struts Configuration 2.5//EN"

Tags attributes

The id attribute was replaced with var attribute in the following tags.

  • <s:action>
  • <s:append>
  • <s:bean>
  • <s:date>
  • <s:generator>
  • <s:iterator>
  • <s:merge>
  • <s:number>
  • <s:set>
  • <s:sort>
  • <s:subset>
  • <s:text>
  • <s:url>

If you have something like that in your code:

<s:url id="url" action="login">

change it to:

<s:url var="url" action="login">

The <s:set> tag name attribute is replaced with var attribute.

From:

<s:set id="str1" value="'string1 value'" />
<s:set name="str2" value="'string2 value'" />

to:

<s:set var="str1" value="'string1 value'" />
<s:set var="str2" value="'string2 value'" />

Also escape attribute was renamed to escapeHtml attribute.

From:

<s:property escape="true" var="someProperty"/>

to:

<s:property escapeHtml="true" var="someProperty"/>

Div tag

The <s:div> tag was dropped.

Replace <s:div> with plain HTML <div> tag.

Field names

If you have field names which starts with single lower case letter, for example:

private String sTrng;
public String getSTrng() {...}
public void setSTrng(String str) {...}

change accessors to getsTrng and setsTrng.

Or better yet, change field names to not contain single lower case letter:

private String strng;
public String getStrng() {...}
public void setStrng(String str) {...}

For additional info see WW-3909.

Tiles

Depending on from which version of struts you upgrade and whether you used tiles-plugin or tiles3-plugin you may need to do different steps.

Struts 2.5 just provides a tiles-plugin which uses Tiles3. So support for Tiles2 has been dropped as well as the name tiles3-plugin.

Now the only maven dependency looks like this:

maven dependecy for tiles-plugin
<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.struts</groupId>
    <artifactId>struts2-tiles-plugin</artifactId>
    <version>${struts2.version}</version>
</dependency>

You may need to update DTD in your tiles.xml files to Tiles3:

tiles3 dtd
<!DOCTYPE tiles-definitions PUBLIC
       "-//Apache Software Foundation//DTD Tiles Configuration 3.0//EN"

A Listener in web.xml is required. It is not necessary to configure paths to tiles.xml files here as they are picked up automatically.

StrutsTilesListener in web.xml
<listener>
  <listener-class>org.apache.struts2.tiles.StrutsTilesListener</listener-class>
</listener>

Optionally you may remove TilesDefinitions from XML and annotate actions instead. See Tiles Plugin for more details.

Temp/Work directory of ApplicationServer/ServletContainer

Users reported it was necessary for them to remove temp/work directory of their ApplicationServer/ServletContainer. Likely to force server to recompile JSPs.

你需要我,我在;你不需要我,我走开;我不卑微^只是坚信&

如果有一天,你说爱我,我会告诉你,我在等你;如果有一天,你离开我,我不会留你,我知道你有你的理由;如果有一天,我们擦肩而过,我会停住脚步,凝视你远去的背影,告诉自己那个人我曾经爱过。你需要我,我在。你不需要我,我走开。我不卑微,只是坚信,这是我存在的价值;岁月如梦,没有给我们重逢的路……
