Hi Maja Gralewska ,

Welcome to JavaRanch. Looking at the documentation and other relevant discussions, it looks like you should have a knowledge on some *action based* frameworks, say a typical example Struts so that you can get your hands dirty easily in Stripes!

Just to clarify, Stripes I think is a great start for the beginner, and you don't need to "know Struts" first.

You should have some basic JSP/Servlet and HTTP knowledge though to get the most out Stripes.

I think anyone learning web programming in Java should start with a simple JSP/Servlet application to understand the work flows and development process. Also, it helps to understand what the hub-bub is about and why you'd want something like Stripes in the first place.

Will is right. May not be really needed to know Struts BUT the request/response based action framework!
