I have a question for those who are using Struts. I'd be really interested in which of the following best applies to you?

1. Prior to learning Struts, I was well versed in Servlets and JSP, and had professional experience developing applications using Servlets and JSP.

2. Prior to learning Struts, I had read books about Servlets and JSP (or taken the SCWCD exam), but had no professional experience developing applications using JSP and Servlets.

3. Prior to learning Struts, I had little knowledge concerning Servlets and JSP.

This all relates to a future topic I'd like to discuss, so I think it would be great if we could have a bunch of people answer this truthfully.

I was working earlier with core java and later started to work in web application. At that time struts was new to me.. So no 3 applies to me

3 then 2. I started learning struts then realized I needed more experience with Servlets and JSP. Stopped Struts, got versed in Servlets/JSP then came back to Struts. For the record however, I am not currently using Struts on any projects.

#2 with failure, then #1 with success.

I tried learning Struts after getting SCWCD when I had very little working experience. I didn't understand it.

I tried learning it again a year later after gaining more professional experience and it made more sense then.

3...I learned Struts, JSP and Servlets all at the same time. I reckon you end up blurring the concepts of each pretty heavily in learning this way - I'm going to go over Servlets and JSP separately as soon as I find a spare few hours

Learning all 3 at the same time is like learning the 'practice' without the 'theory' in any area...I can make stuff work, but I don't really know how it all ties together. Not a nice feeling, I reckon.

2 or 3..
As i have gone through lots of examples and worked with struts and my compnent developed was utilized by the team actually implimenting there solutions using struts so i have little expossure.

Also i have gone through examples and read a lot but still need to review and do more examples. I have not given certification.

But I like struts and would like to share my views and code with you guys

Hmm...a mixture of all three.

Decent knowledge of Servlets, but minimal professional experience.

No practical knowledge of JSP.

1 for me -- but not much of JSP but lot of servlets.

Now a 10 months ago I strated with latest project on struts, and I am using velocity instead of JSP. IMHO -- it's much cleaner and better approach.

I hardly had any professional experience in Jsp,Servlets prior to learning
struts. But by that time, I had read quite a few books on Servlets.

3. I jumped right into J2EE with Struts. However, prior to that, I was already familiar with J2SE and I had a few years experience writing small-to-medium webapps using PHP3 and PHP4. I was up to speed with the web container very quickly.

Also, in writing PHP I previously had invented the front-controller design pattern on my own, so Struts wasn't all that alien to me. I knew which problems it's designed to solve, having previously solved them on my own in much the same way. Most of the problems I ran into while learning Struts and J2EE had to do with the Tiles framework and attribute scoping therein.
