Starting from release 6.0, IntelliJ IDEA will provide Struts support out-of-the-box. The functionality is added by Struts Assistant plugin that is now bundled to IntelliJ IDEA. So you’ll get it without any additional download and installation. Furthermore, the plugin will be better integrated with IntelliJ IDEA core and will immediately get all J2EE improvements and new features that will be available in the forthcoming IntelliJ IDEA 6.0. The plugin itself will be free and open source, so you can find it in IntelliJ IDEA plugin repository.
The next great news is that Dmitry Avdeev, the Struts Assistant plugin developer, is now hired by JetBrains. He’ll become a member of the J2EE team in IntelliJ IDEA. Welcome aboard, Dmitry!
