As far as I know there isn't.

Have you considered searching the web for such a book? Search engines like Google are pretty good at finding things on the web. If it exists, it'll find it.

There is no Struts book in the "Head First" series, though there is a "honorary" mention of the same in HeadFirst JSP and Servlets. I've personally found the online resources to be the best bet [specially the one at www.roseindia.net].

To provide a counterpoint, I generally steer people away from roseindia tutorials (see this thread for some reasons and similar opinions).

thank you dawn and david . and i saw roseindia.net, it looks good, but i also read the link given by david , in that people are a bit not confident about the quality of the programs, hmm... so i have to see what to do. i am thinking to buy o'reillys "programming jakarta struts by chuck cavaness". i saw in the link given by manoj, that book looks promising.

Anyhow one doubt....there are so many frameworks are there now a days like struts , springs , hibernate etc. which is the best framework and most used by current industry .

"Best" is entirely subjective.

Try searching job sites to see which frameworks come up the most. After Struts 1 the Java web framework space fragmented--there are still lots of S1 apps being written (although I think that's silly), Spring MVC is popular, S2 is gaining some market share as far as I can tell but slowly, JSF/etc. is used in some places but I don't see it having widespread penetration outside of large corporate houses. Wicket, Tapestry, and Stripes all have a fairly small market share despite being pretty decent.

Some places are going to more service-oriented architectures using things like Spring, JAX-RS, S2's REST plugin, JRuby-on-Rails, and so on. What works best for *you* may depend more on your location and what people are hiring you (or who you work for) for.

Amazing david,

What works best for *you* may depend more on your location and what people are hiring you (or who you work for) for.


so it entirely depends upon various issues like you have mentioned above.Anyway thank you.
