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, denon82@msn.com

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: http://aspose.com/file-tools
