This article describes how to set up WebSphere Studio Application Developer V5.1.2 (hereafter called Application Developer) to use the Struts Scripting tool to implement ActionClasses in Jython. Developing Struts actions using a scripting language gives you a faster write-and-test cycle and lets you reuse existing Jython/Python scripts without translating them into Java. Choosing Jython as your scripting language lets you easily interact with Java and use the Struts framework classes. The configuration, however, is a bit tricky, because it is based on the Bean Scripting Framework, the Struts scripting tool, and Jython. This article provides a step-by-step guide to customize the environment. You should have some experience with WebSphere Studio, Struts, and Jython or Python.
