I only started using struts in the last few weeks and I used the book "Struts in Action" and a tutorial at the following link for practice.

I have been using struts for about 2 years and the best advice that I can give is to grab a tutorial online and develop something small. If you do that, you will be able to see how everything fits together, actions, forms, jsp's etc. Then once you have a decent understanding, get a good struts book, it will make it easier to understand.
I started with the book and found it very confusing, so I just jumped in. I admit there wasn't very much good information back then to consult, the best resources were user groups. I am sure the books have gotten a lot better but the best way to learn is hands on.

trupti, you might like to mosey on over to the JavaRanch Bunkhouse, where we've listed a number of reviews made by JavaRanchers on various Struts books.

Also, towards the top of this forum, notice the links to two JavaRanch Journal articles that introduce Struts.

"Struts in Action" is a good book but has some flaws.
There is a new free book "Jakarta-Struts Live" that you can download the pdf for free at serverside.com.
