Form Simplication Tags for JSP 1.2 and Servlet 2.3
Are there any plans to create HTML tags similar to the Struts HTML tags to be used in servlet 2.3 containers? In case the spring developers have not noticed, there are not too many commercial application servers that support the latest J2EE 1.4 specification. My company recently upgraded from Weblogic 6.1 to Weblogic 8.1 which is compliant with J2EE 1.3 and thus servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2. I have proposed that we switched from Struts to Spring MVC for our next project but I am facing heavy resistance from Struts loyalists who favor using custom tags for form fields as opposed to using Spring's flexible but verbose style bind tags to do the same thing.
Does the spring team think that the web tier is vastly becoming a servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0 world and therefore will stop focusing on servlet 2.3?
