      JDK 8

      Description

      The generation of Struts Taglib TLD files relies on annotation processing with the apt tool, wrapped by maven-apt-plugin.
      In JDK 7 apt has been deprecated in favor of JSR 269. In JDK 8 apt tool has been removed completely.
      In effect, Struts core and all tag library projects relying on the struts-annotation helper library won't build any longer under JDK 8. A major effort is needed to introduce a compatible replacement.
