Hi all,
I have to create a front-end for our new intrAnet application. Since
it's completely new I've chosen to use Struts.

This are the restriction given by our Company:

JDK 1.4.2
J2EE 1.4
Struts 1.1
Browser compatibility: IE 6 + eventually IE 7
Productive platform OS: Solaris 10

Does any of you know if there is some incompatibility choosing to
develop the JSPs with Struts 1.1 and declaring the pages with XHTML
Strict Doctype?
If there is some incompatibility or maybe risk, which doctype would be
the better one?

Thank you very much for your hint guys,
John

Java 1.4.2 already entered its End-of-Life process over a year ago, and will
be retired outright this summer - be aware.
<http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/index.jsp>

Besides, you miss out on all the lovely enhancements that came in with Java 5.

Even the not-current Java 5 is already three-plus years old. Even that is due
to enter End-of-Life this summer if Sun follows its standard process.

The current version of Struts 1.x is 1.3. v1.1 is pretty far behind the front
edge.

There should be no trouble whatsoever, other than Struts 1.1 being itself an
old version.

Your problem will not be DOCTYPE but more likely using obsolescent, possibly
unpatched versions of software. If you absolutely, positively must use Java
1.4.2, at least make sure you're patched through the latest version
sub-release to ensure you don't have security vulnerabilities. (Update 16 is
the current sub-release.)
