In Pictures: 15 high-impact Apache projects

From Harmony to Hadoop, Apache has been a powerful contributor to the open source ecosystem


Struts is a framework for building Java Web apps. It began as a subproject of Apache Jakarta and was spun out in 2005.

“The Apache Struts project offers framework solutions to build so-called action-based Java Web applications, in contrast to component-based solutions like JSF or Apache Wicket,” says Rene Gielen, vice president of Apache Struts.

Version 1 was the de-facto standard for building Java-based Web applications before the rise of JavaServer Faces, Gielen says. Struts 2 “is a lightweight, elegant, and highly decoupled action-based Web framework being built on the basic principles introduced by Struts 1, but without sharing a single line of code with its predecessor.” A major redesign is anticipated for Struts 3 in the near future.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
