Which way to go: struts 1 or 2

Hello all,

I'm just starting to understand and use the struts framework.
But which would be the right choise ?
Should I delve into struts 2 right away, skipping struts 1 or should I first learn 1??
Lets say I start with a relative simple project which could grow to a more
complicated bigger 'thing' with database access, AJAX, you know, the better WEB 2.0 application.

Thanks for your response!

Go directly with Struts 2. This topic comes up quite often,so if you want/need further explanations use the search.

Agreed; the only reason to learn Struts 1 is if you have a specific technical need, like a job.
I agree. Here's the link:
