Does this updated version of Struts in Action contain any information on Velocity? Now that Struts 2 is using it for the HTML being output by their custom tags, I'm finding myself needing to learn more about it.

At least the index lists a few pages about Velocity.

ACtually, STruts 2 uses FreeMarker templates to render its tags. And YES! the book goes through all of this, and even provides some examples of customizing the underlying templates to create your own versions of the UI Component ( forms, input fields, etc. ) tags.

I am working with Struts 1.1 and 1.2 for last two years. But I absolutely do not have any knowledge on struts 2. And I can not afford spend lot of time to learn struts 2. Can this book help someone like me to learn struts 2 fast?
