Hi can anyone reccomend a book for core java and struts for me? I am a beginner i will be learning Core Java from next week. I have to complete a project with the following specifications.

IDE – Integrated Development Environment
Suggested Tool: Eclipse 3.x
CMS – Configuration Management System
Suggested Tool: CVS
Web Server
Suggested Tool: Tomcat
Development Platform: J2EE
Framework: Struts 1.2 and above
Architecture: MVC (Model View Controller)
Languages: Model (PL/SQL), View(JSP), Controller(Struts/Core Java)
Database: Oracle


I am not comfortable with how head first is. Please help. The project with above specification is to be done in 6 weeks. Can you please mention how which topics i need to focus on in Java while doing this. I have worked on ASP.NET before, made a website using MVC architecture.

Also I need to know what is Structs , is it similar to MVC used in ASP.NET?

Hi Yuta,

Welcome to the Ranch

For java you can start with "Java, A Beginner's Guide, 5th Edition" by Herbert Schildt

and for struts

"Struts 2 Design and Programming" by Budi Kurniawan

Thanks & Regards, Sumeet

hey, i read core servlet and jsp, volume I and II
was my first 2 books on JEE and found them very useful.
great part of volume II is about strouts. Never read that part (will when and if it becomes necessary)
the book is from 2008 i think.
is strouts still commonly used btw? or has it been replaced with some more modern framework?

yes . these days we have struts 2, which is different from struts 1. and according to me struts 2 is still one of the most good web application framework for java, though it has been bit shadowed by Spring. but still i see demand for struts and springs both.
