A question I see very often on this forum is "What is a good book to learn Struts?" Here is a list of some of the best selling Struts books from Bookpool:

Struts: The Complete Reference James Holmes
McGraw-Hill, Published 2004, ISBN 0072231319

Programming Jakarta Struts, 2nd Edition Chuck Cavaness
O'Reilly Media, Published 2004, 2nd edition, ISBN 0596006519

Struts in Action Ted Husted, et al
Manning Publications, Published 2002, ISBN 1930110502

Beginning Apache Struts: From Novice to Professional Arnold Doray
Apress, Published 2006, ISBN 1590596048

Professional Jakarta Struts James Goodwill
Wrox Press, Published 2003, ISBN 0764544373

Pro Jakarta Struts, 2nd Edition John Carnell, et al
Apress, Published 2004, ISBN 159059228X

The only one that I have is "Programming Jakarta Struts" (I have the first edition) and I would recommend it. I have read some of "Struts in Action" and I have read other good comments, so I would put that one on my recommended list. Does anybody have input on the others (including ones not listed)? If this goes in the FAQ then it seems best to only include the top 3 or 4 recommended books.

There are also some good online tutorials out there. There was also a post not too long back that had a link to a full Struts book online that looked pretty decent. Should some of those links be included?
