Here is the live version of the Struts JavaDoc API documentation:  http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/api/index.html

Of course, you did ask to download it, for that you'll need to pull down the src version of Struts and compile it.  The build.xml that is included in the Struts src download contains a target 'compile.javadoc' which will create the API for you locally.

You need to download the src (source code) version of Struts.  One possible link is from the Mirror site at:  http://www.wmwweb.com/apache/jakarta/struts/source/jakarta-struts-1.1-src.zip

You can get a list of source code versions of the Jakarta projects from: http://jakarta.apache.org/site/sourceindex.cgi

Once you have pulled down the jakarta-struts-1.1-src.zip archive, you will need to extract it into a directory on your harddrive.  You will then need to use ant to run the 'build.xml' that is shipped with the jakarta-struts-1.1-src.zip archive.  The command 'ant compile.javadoc' should be sufficient to generate the API documentation.  It uses the 'javadoc' command to parse the JavaDoc comments embedded within the source code of Struts and generate API documentation from those comments.  

If you do not have ant, it is also available from Apache.  Its home is at: http://ant.apache.org/

You can install ant anywhere you like, you will however need to have the path to the 'ant' script in your PATH such that you can run it.  Or, alternatively, you could give the full path to the 'ant' script and run it that way.  There are many ways, of course, to run this and they are all operating system dependent.

If you had version 1.5.4 of ant, for instance, you would need to be running the script located at apache-ant-1.5.4/bin/ant ... I would recommend you get the latest verion of ant that is available for download.
