Guys,

We started using Struts in one of our projects and I"m finding this very very useful which makes my task damn easier. Hope this gets along a long way with many more enhancements to the framework.

Jothi..which book are you reading for learning Struts?

i just got O'Reilly's Jakarta Struts...

The person who developed Struts and then gave it to Apache has actually one of the people who did specification/API job of JSF. So it is said that it is very useful to use it in Struts.

Hi Jothi...

When i was buying the book i was keen on comparing both the books ...the complete reference and the programming in jakarta struts...

i found that complete reference covered topics of version higher(1.x not 2 though) than what jakarta struts was covering (1.1)....

but i got jakarta struts coz it had lot of coding examples inside...which i thought i would practice while studying....(if i am not lazy!... )

Lots of stuffs are kind of easy to understanding since we are preparing scwcd and familar with jsp/servlets...but the chanllenge is of understanding the classes and their properties/functions which Struts provide...

you are finding it easy to understand Jothi?

I liked the complete reference book, a lot more clear and easy to understand that the jakarta struts book.

Hi Atul,

I'm really finding it easy to understand from the complete reference. If not during the first time, at least during the second time of reading. Jakarta Struts is a good book with lots of practical examples...I agree and the complete ref also has some good working complete examples in it. It actually contemplates on a single application and applies it to all the chapters which makes it easy for one to grasp those topics.

The hard time that I'm having with Struts is that I'm often times forgetting the tags and the attributes allowed for those tags. Are you able to remember them well?

My alltime favorite is Wrox Publishers book for any subject.

Professional Jakarta Struts - is a damn good book what i got the version covering 1.1 in the year 2004. No idea about the release for version2.

Next, you can go for is 'Struts in Action' (any Action Series).

Hi Jothi...

I completed agree with you that when you read the book second it actually begin make sense!

i am happy that you are able to grasp most of the stuff at first glance. I am able to grasp the basic concepts like classes used in controller (ActionServlet, Action, ActionForm etc...) but not able to understand javabean stuff used in struts config xml file and others thing related to xml file.

Dont worry about the attributes and tags stuff its no use mugging it up so early...this is an initial phase you will grasp them as soon as you start reading 2nd time, 3rd time and numerous times since then things begin to make sense.

Let me see if i am able get most of the stuff 2nd time or 3rd time reading or else i have to get some other book!

Thanks all!

Atul,

I'm sure that you will grasp the concept during the second run. It's no big deal!
