Java: Install struts2 plugin on netbeans 6.8

Apache Struts 2 is an elegant, extensible framework for creating enterprise-ready Java web applications. The framework is designed to streamline the full development cycle, from building, to deploying, to maintaining applications over time.

Apache Struts 2 was originally known as WebWork 2. After working independently for several years, the WebWork and Struts communities joined forces to create Struts2. This new version of Struts is simpler to use and closer to how Struts was always meant to be.

For those who still continue adding the files of struts2 like jar files there’s alternative to make possible select the framework on the wizard window of the new projects.

It’s simple just download this 2 files (.rbms)  which are modules or new updates for netbeans, form the site of struts:

How to install modules

  • Invoke plugin manager via ‘Tools | Plugins’
  • Select the ‘Downloaded’ tab in the plugin manager
  • Click on Install button
  • Follow the wizard, and then restart netbeans
  • Now you can start a new project wizard, and on the step of frameworks selection you will see stuts(1.3.x) and struts2 (2.0.11) .
  • More info can be obtained from NetBeans 6.8 portal and the struts official site.
