Hello friends,
I am new to Stuts , and i am looking for a good book to start .
I have some books here :
1- Mastering Jakarta Struts by: James Goodwill
2- Manning Struts In Action by: Ted Husted
I think both of these books are for professional Developers who need practical examples , and more complex examples .
3- Sams Struts KICK START by: James Turner
I think this is the suitable one for me , because it's simple for beginners , and don't go alot inside details .
Do you think I am right ??
I need your advice
Thanks alot

I wouldn't exclude the O'Reilly title Programming Jakarta Struts either. Furthermore, you might want to wait until next week and see whether you've won Professional Jakarta Struts by Goodwill & Hightower from our book promotion

I used the O'Reilly book, as a beginner. It seemed to do a pretty good job getting it all into my head.

Thank you Lasse , I wish i win "Professional Jakarta Struts" , but this is not sure
Thank you Nathaniel too , i wish you to have a great job soon .
it was really shock for me when i read your resume ,and knew that you are good qualified and also in USA but you are not hired
In this case me (from Egypt) and less quaified i have no hope
There is always hope I know , just kidding
Good luck

There are lot of jobs for good developers in India.
Just my 2 cents.
Coming to the actual posting, "Struts Survival guide" by Srikanth Shenoy is also good. I used it to get upto speed on Struts.
My personal feeling about struts is that real power of it comes from extending it rather than from the standard features available with it.
