hi Lasse: the bookd i got is Mastering Jakarta Struts by James Goodwill. The reason I found the book not helpful for me is I found it very shallow. It shows you how make things work, but doesn't explain how it works. As I read the book, many quistion rise in my mind, and the bood doesn't provide answers.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
