I have read 2 books talking about Webwork (struts 2):
1. Java Open Source Programming: with XDoclet, JUnit, WebWork, Hibernate
2. Webwork in Action

On the first book the author goes into the world of open source programing and explain a bunch of technologies including webwork. I really liked this book. Since it was my first on the topic, it was of a great help.

The webwork in action book was more like a tuturial. The book explained in details the main features of the framework. The book gave me a detailed explanation about webwork features such as jsp tags, validation, interceptors etc. This book is really good as a reference guide.

My question is... how is the 'Struts 2 Design and Programming: A Tutorial ' book compared to other books that talks about this framework? Do you talk about struts 2 and ajax integration? Does the book talk about struts 2 and spring framework integration? I would love to read your book. I am a big fan of the struts 2 framework and its predecessor, (webwork). I think struts 2 is one of the best open source framework for J2EE available in the market.

have a nice day.

I work with the following technologies: Webwork 2.2, Xwork, iReport 0.5.2 Jasper Reports 1.1.0, JSP 2.0, CSS, Java Script, Hibernate 3.0.5, MySQL 4.1.7, Eclipse 3.1, Tomcat 5.5.9, JBoss 4.0.2. Any Doubt? ask me,

AJAX integration is discussed in Chapter 27, but you need Struts 2.1.

Unfortunately, it does not cover Spring.
I agree. Here's the link:
