I actually have my old book of Struts 1.1. Now actually i want to learn Struts.
is it fine i should go with my old book Professional Jakarta Struts 1.1 James Goodwill, Richard Highgtower. or rather than going for the old book.
i should go directly for struts 2. if yes, can you recommend me which is the best book to go for.

thanks in advance.

If you don't *need* to learn S1, then don't--there's absolutely no connection between S1 and S2 other than the "Struts" brand: they're completely different frameworks.

That's fine, I was mostly addressing any sense of "progression" from S1 to S2--there isn't any; the things you learn for S1 are mostly irrelevant to S2.

I don't see any real reason to learn S1.1; the minimum I'd recommend is S1.2. Personally, I find S2 much, much easier to deal with both conceptually and in reality. S1 was among the first Java-based web frameworks, and really shows its age and immaturity.

hi,

I am agree with David. I also find that there is no connection between Struts 1 and Strut 2 .

And always try to learn latest thing which gives you better market value.

I am also agree that there are so many application build on Struts 1.3 and that is way now Struts 1.3 also dependable at market.

But now all are start to move on Struts 2.0 and it is very easy, advance and add easily integrate third party tool.

So, i give you advice to learn Struts 2.0

I have a conflict of interest, as I'm the author of an S2 book, so I'll just say that I've read them all, and they all have something to offer.
