Struts 2 Annotations Example

Struts 2 provides you convenient way to create struts application using annotations. So, there is no need to have struts.xml file.

As we have said earlier, there are 2 ways to use zero configuration file (no struts.xml file).

  1. By convention
  2. By annotation

Annotations used in struts 2 application

For simple annotation example of struts 2, we can use 3 annotations:

1) @Action annotation is used to mark the action class.

2) @Results annotation is used to define multiple results for one action.

3) @Result annotation is used to display single result.


Example of struts 2 application using annotations

You need to create 4 files for struts annotated application:

  1. index.jsp
  2. Action class
  3. struts.properties inside src directory
  4. Result page
  5. web.xml file

Let's have a look at the directory structure first.
