What language uses .do extensions?

I did a search, but searching for "do" is a tricky one. What language is most commonly associated with .do files?

Thanks,
Justin

[filext.com...]

Probably the Digital Outrage one. I've also seen it as a proprietary CMS for a network of sites (sorry, forgotton who it was. Early version of Lycos? Or Yahoo!?).

You can name your pages with almost any extension you like as long as the parser is set in IIS or Apache.

Thanks Sanenet.

I was just wondering if the .do extension was more common to any specific languages. And yes, the ability to name a file basically anything you want under the web servers does make it all the harder.

Thanks for the site.

No, No, No!

The .do extension is strictly for JavaServer Pages using the struts framework. The .do extension tells the Application Server to find a config file which calls the proper action class to process the form.

Struts is the ultimate "separate content from display" implementation.

Go to www.sun.com or to apache.org to find out more about JSP and Struts.

Thanks txbakers.

That is what I was looking for, I guess. Maybe it should be added to filext?

No, you don't have to add it to filext because the application server will read it. It's meaningless to other non-JSP servers.

I was going to recommend Almost Every file format in the world! [ace.net.nz], but .do isn't there :(

But probably worth keeping a note of for future reference.

Well, it looks like I'm not the only Java nut around here :)

It's sometimes used as an abbreviation for DOH!

It should also be mentioned that a server can be configured to parse a .do file as anything. So, when you see submitOrder.do in a web address, it could really be a PHP script that is doing the work.

There are a few Java geeks in here - myself included.
