How to open Microsoft Office 2007 Documents In Office 2003 or office 2000

Many of us have face the problem that we are not able to open Microsoft office files with extensions “.docx” – Word Document , “.xlsx” – MS excel file and “.pptx” – Powerpoint presentations in Microsoft office 2003 or office 2000.
This is because the documents saved in the office 2007 are not backward compatible directly. But there is a very useful and easy add-on available from Microsoft itself.

Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack

This compatibility pack will let you open the newer MS office documents with extensions .docx , .xlsx and .pptx with the older versions of MS Office 2003 and Office 2000. You will also be able to open, edit, and save files using the file formats new to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007. You simply need to download Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack and install it on your computer which has the older version of MS office.
That’s It!!!

How to have 2 or more Struts config file

Some times when you work in group, you work on different modules of a single project so each module has its own struts config file…
Now when you want to combine all the modules to make a complete project than sometimes we face problem to merge multple struts config file into one.

So here is the Code how to have multiple struts config file in a project

In order to tell the framework about your different modules(different struts config file), we specify multiple ‘config’ initialization parameters in our Web.xml. we’ll still use ‘config’ to tell the ActionServlet about our “default” module, however, for each additional module, we will list an initialization parameter named “config /module “, where /module is the prefix for our module. For eg:-


Here we have two modules. One happens to be the “default” module, identified by the param-name of “config”, and the other will be using the module prefix “/module1” based on the param-name it was given (“config/module1”).

Similarly we can write code for more than 2 Struts config file.

That’s it!!!
