    Struts tags not working in AS7

    Red Militante Newbie

      I'm trying to migrate a webapp from AS5 to AS7. 

       

       

      I copied my webapp to my new project, which adheres to Maven conventions

       

      me@Computer:~/Documents/workspace/myapp$ pwd
      /Users/me/Documents/workspace/myapp

      I'm able to compile and deploy my app successfully, but my jsps do not look right.

       

       

      Looks like my struts tags are not being recognized.  I look at my page source and inputs look like

       

       

       

       

          <html:text  property="username" size="30" maxlength="30"/>

       

       

       

       

      instead of

       

       

       

       

          <input type="text" name="username" maxlength="30" size="30" value="">

       

       

       

       

      I'm guessing I have to include struts as a Dependency?  I try to do this with MANIFEST.MF.  My MANIFEST.MF exists in <app>/src/main/resources/META-INF and looks like

       

       

      Manifest-Version: 1.0
      Dependencies: org.apache.log4j org.apache.struts
      

       

      Doesn't seem to be working?  Is this correct?  Is there something I should be enabling in order to get struts tags to work?  Thanks for any advice.  I should also add that I get no deployment errors or runtime errors in my server logs.
