IntelliJ IDEA supports the Struts framework for creating Java EE and Web Applications.
Struts support is enabled through the dedicated Web and Struts facets. The dedicated facets that contain settings, configuration file paths, and validation rules determine the structure of the module so that IntelliJ IDEA detects how to treat the module contents.
A Struts facet can be only created as a child of aWeb facet.
Only one Struts facet is allowed per module.
IntelliJ IDEA provides the following support of the Struts framework:
Automatic creation of the specific module structure and the Web application deployment descriptor web.xml based on the dedicated Web facet.
Downloading and adding the necessary libraries automatically and creating the Struts application configuration file struts-config.xml based on the dedicated Struts facet.
