Can anyone recommend a good book for Struts. I had learned struts about 2 years back but now I have to use it at my job for first time. I know O'reilly has a book programming jakarta struts, has anyone read it? How is that book?

Thanks a lot.

I started reading Oreilly's Struts book (borrowed from a friend) -- didn't like it. It starts by going into explaining what Struts is how it follows MVC DP, but when it comes time for examples I got lost with figuring out how all Model Classes (EJB) work to support what Action Classes and application must do. Was too confusing for me IMO.

'Struts in Action' (borrowed from another friend) -- explains the whole structure of Struts much better than Oreilly's but the book does not flow. Author tends to jump from one subject to another and back again.

'Struts: The Complete Reference' (didn't borrow this one, bought it) -- like it very much. Everything is explained step by step and you don't get lost in details that should be discussed in other books (EJB, JMS...)

Hope this helps,
Alex
