Question for Budi: "Struts 2 Design and Programming: A Tutorial "

To the author:
Does the book provide an explanation of the conceptual reasons for the enhancements in Struts 2 from Struts 1 ?. Like thread safe action class - eliminating the need to pass the arguments in the execute() method, etc.

Does it provide details into the Ajax related Structs 2.1 enhancements, like the retriveUrl() method? Last time I read a book on "Struts with Ajax", the Ajax was mentioned in only one chapter - 12 pages (out of which 8 pages are just code). In this book the responseXML was generated in the brute-force way. I guess Struts has some inherent support for Ajax, where the action invoked from a form, after doing all the business logic and getting the updated form attributes, updates/renders the form with the responseXML - without much work for the developer to parse the responseXML and repopulate the form. Please advise if your book goes into this.

I got my answer to the first question on Struts1 versus Struts2 from the Apache site.
However, I am still curious to know to what extent your book goes into the details of the Structs/Ajax interface?
Thanks, Sudd

yeah do you have anything for struts & AJAX. I think framework is good but people want RIA application compare to simple HTML/CSS (you can have great site with UI designer using HTML but AJAX makes it better)

Thanks,
Ken

Budi posted the table of contents here and you can see his book has a chapter dedicated to Struts and AJAX.
