Throughout the rest of this book, we will construct a shopping-cart type application to use for all of the examples. By the end of the book, we should have a fairly complete application that uses most of the Struts 1.1 features. Figure 4-1 shows the main page of the Storefront example application.
Figure 4-1. The main page of the Storefront application
The Storefront application will demonstrate an e-commerce automotive parts supplier, but you can substitute any items you want as long as you have your own images and data to put into the application. In the end, the Storefront application will be a complete web archive (WAR) file that can be deployed into any compliant web container and used as an example for many different purposes.
