Hi

At present I am using JSP to develop webpages. I heard that STRUTS are better to use than JSP.

Is it true? Can anyone please briefly tell me which is the best framework for developing webapplication. You can suggest me other than JSP & STRUTS also.

If Struts is good, please suggest me some textbooks and any site which best suites for beginner.

Thanks

Struts is not JSP, its a web development framework. Go and checkout what Struts can do: http://struts.apache.org/

Been debated many times here, Search this forum for the same.

For beginners of Struts , The best book is Mastering_Jakarta_Struts.pdf by James Goodwill .

Not really, and it covers a *very* old version of Struts.

In any case, it's not an issue of "Struts vs. JSP", since Struts uses JSP as the default view layer.

I use Struts 2 in Action from Manning Publications and like it very much.

Without knowing which version of Struts you're targeting it's hard to know what book to recommend.

Perhaps I went out on a limb here, but as the OP is considering for the first time the use of Struts, wouldn't we recommend he begin with Struts 2?

Sure, but what we recommend, and his actual needs, are two different things.
