I am really interested in this book.
Good to know the book is for beginners in Struts like me.

I am a college student with intermediate knowledge in Java, and wanna be a web developer.


Does this book contain exercises and Projects ?
Also how much is the cost of the book, if you don't mind...

It doesn't contain exercises like a text book does, but it does have some suggestions for things the reader can try on their own.

I am also an intermediate Java developer that has just started learning J2EE and Websphere.

My question is whether the book delves into topics like configuring Struts for Websphere Commerce? Also, does the book get into other technologies that Struts works with like Spring or Hibernate?

Thanks!!

Right now the book doesn't cover any database-specific technology (that was a can of worms we best thought avoided). Similarly it doesn't cover any particular application servers.

Both topics are so specific to each installation that it didn't really seem practical.

Sorry!

No, it's not "totally based on Spring". Spring may be used as the object factory, but it isn't required.

It is *completely* different from Struts 1.

Struts 2 currently ships with some Ajax-enabled tags using an older version of the Dojo library. These tags have not yet been updated to a modern Dojo version and may not be.

Struts 2 can, of course, be used with any Ajax/JavaScript framework; on the Struts user mailing list there are folks using jQuery, EXT, YUI, and so on.
