I myself have never used struts so I can not give you that sort of a reference. But others have psoted information about refernce reading material. If this sort of information would help check out http://www.theserverside.com/resources/strutsreview.jsp

Near the bottom of this page is a list of sites that use Struts. Struts is an excellent model 2 framework, but it seems to be tied to jsp too much for the presentation. I am still looking into how well other presentation methods (such as XML/XSLT) integrate with the rest of the framework.

I will go read the references that you indicated.

I'm building enterprise-scale J2EE applications using Struts and all is well. Its got its share of pros and cons, and I would rather have a WebObjects-like presentation tier personally (and researching Tapestry is on my to-do list) but Struts has lots of decent built-in features that save a lot of time (validation, for example). And I'm using XDoclet to generate struts-config.xml and very likely will be generating validation.xml from custom form bean @tags (I'll contribute this back to XDoclet when/if I get it working nicely).

. Struts is an excellent model 2 framework, but it seems to be tied to jsp too much for the presentation. I am still looking into how well other presentation methods (such as XML/XSLT) integrate with the rest of the framework.

I also got the impression that Struts was tied to jsp too much - Model 2 uses jsp's for the view portion of model, view, controller. I'd rather use XML/XSLT. I came across Model 2X which is supposed to replace the jsp portion with XML and XSLT:
Boost Struts with XSLT and XML
I'd like more information on this. The Struts user guide shows how to implement the view portion using jsp's but not XSLT as far as I can see:
http://jakarta.apache.org/struts/userGuide/index.html
Where can I get more information on implementing Model 2X? Has anyone here used this model?
Any pointers are appreciated.

There is an excelent article about using xml/xslt with struts by Bernie Woehrlin (he used to visit a lot the ranch some time ago) in german javamagazin, but its german only.
Here is the information on his website about strutsCx, which replaces jsp with xml/xslt (in english)
