Hello Dave,
I would love to see a chapter on practical sample web application using Struts2 which uses struts2 best practices. I would also like to see Struts2 Integration with Tiles2 or SiteMash, Sturts2 - Spring, Struts2 with Jquery or any other java script framework with lots of examples, lots of ajax example of practical use, theme customization, error & exception handling, Struts2 localization & internalization features, Sturts2 Skinning, REST examples, menu support, some breadcrumb example etc...

The book does not include Tiles or SiteMesh. There is some Spring with regards to testing and dependency injection. I use jQuery for most of the JavaScript examples, including Ajax. There is a chapter on themes and templates; I'm not sure how you differentiate between that and skinning. The RIA chapter includes the REST plugin. I18N is covered in the chapter covering S2 actions/ActionSupport. Menus have nothing to to with Struts and aren't included, same for breadcrumbs.
