Custom action extension support

Requested since long time, now latest Maia EAP (Build 10666) contains support for custom action-path extension(s) via configuration property struts.action.extension.

The configured extension(s) will be picked automatically from all possible sources (web.xml,, struts.xml, ..) using the same rules as if your application was running "for real".

Improved "constant" handling

The latest Maia EAP release contains a few improvements regarding handling of configuration properties:

  • plugin specific constants (currently Convention, OSGi, REST plugin): specific properties of these plugins are automatically added to autocompletion if the given plugin is present in project

  • support handling in web.xml via <init-param> for Struts 2-Filter

Next will be automatic resolving of all current configuration properties, finally opening the door to long awaited features (amongst them builtin support for Convention plugin).
