Learning Struts

Hi people,

I have good work experience with servlets and jsp. Recently I have attended a few interviews where they focus much on Struts FrameWork. So please suggest me a good and simple book for learning struts. Also for the interview please suggest me the areas where I need to concentrate on Struts framework. Is it good to go with Struts 1.2 or Struts 2 framework?

Whether to focus on Struts 1 or Struts 2 is up to you, and the type of work you think you're likely to get. They're completely different frameworks, so learning one doesn't necessarily translate to knowing anything about the other.

There is still a surprising amount of new development done with Struts 1, although I'm not really sure why--there are so many other, better choices. I think it's just inertia.
