No. XML/XSLT is more flexible than JSP and has been supported bunch of other markup tecnhologies like XML, XHTML and XPath for a long time. Keep it if it works. Don't forget that modern browsers can accept XML and have built-in XSLT processor. So, you can send your serialized bean data as XML with linked XSLT stylesheet with linked CSS stylesheet.
I'm glad to see there is some support for XSLT. Makes me feel like I haven't been barking up the wrong tree for the last few years. Sending the XML to the client is a nice idea in principal but has so many problems that IMHO it's not worth it. Transformation server side is cheap enough now that I don't worry about doing it.
* Perhaps it's still a little early to say exactly how Struts 2.x will turn out but will the idea of view technology independence be maintained? * If Struts 2.x doesn't (essentiall) force us to use something akin to JSF will XSLT still be a viable option?
You can do it in Struts 1.x too. Instead of forwarding to JSP page just stick XML (or XML/XSLT already processed into HTML) into response object and return null from an Action class. Apparently, you would use ActionForm for input only with request scope, and store your app data somewhere in the session or in database.
That's an interesting idea. I have a look into that.
