Struts 1x EOF and Struts 1 vs Struts 2

Struts 1.x End of Life (EOF)

            Struts 1 started in 2000 and it had its initial release in May 2000. Also Struts 1 soon became the de-facto standard for Java-based web application development.

            In the meantime the Struts community has focused on pushing the Struts 2 framework forward, with as many as 23 releases as of April 2013

            Due to lack of volunteer support for struts 1, Community announces the users should not rely on a properly maintained framework.

            Struts 1 had its last release in December 2008 version 1.3.10.

            Taking this into account struts 1 community announces Struts 1 had reached its EOL.
