Is the Struts Zero Configuration facility introduced in the book ?

It is, but as of the that writing, and even as of today actually, the zero-configuration feature is under active development and will still see significant changes. For example, we plan to be bringing in the new Struts 2 Conventions Plugin into the main project, probably for Struts 2.1.3, and it is quite different than the current Struts 2 Codebehind Plugin.

Therefore, the book tends to favor the XML configuration, as it will work no matter the Struts 2 version.

Doh. We'll have to keep up with the new version then. Thank you.

To clarify, the codebehind plugin itself will probably not see too many changes, and even if/when the conventions plugin becomes "the way", the codebehind plugin will continue to be supported.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
