(Confluence) Xwork + webwork module poorly documented


I need to build a new action in Confluence using xwork-webwork and velocity. I want to manage a form, manage attributes/ parameters across navigation, manage a search result pagination, etc.

Unfortunately, in the official documentation https://developer.atlassian.com/server/confluence/xwork-webwork-module/ I could not find much documentation about xwork / webwork framework (I mean Atlassian’s custom implementation which is integrated and available in confluence thru Action and ConfluenceActionSupport).

Moreover the documentation of the underlying framework (com.opensymphony.xwork.Action) does not exist anymore : the website http://www.opensymphony.com is not reacheable. Also ConfluenceActionSupport documentation is poor. And according to forums I can guess that Struts 1 / 2 is not that similar to xwork / webwork… many differences in fact.

Can anyone help me please ?

Thank you very much for
