Hello friends,

I am new to Struts. Can anybody tell me which is the best book for learning Struts? I heard that there are several versions of Struts available in the market.
Which version should I start that will cover almost every part of Struts.

Hi there,

As well as recommendations from here I would search on Amazon and have a read of the various reviews, you'll be able to quickly narrow down what is best for you.

Struts 2 is the newest version, however there are many projects that use Struts 1 yet.

Struts 2 is quite different than Struts 1 (actually, Struts 2 was a project called Webwork and joined to Apache team and changed its name to Struts 2).

Unfortunately Struts 2 official documentation is not so good, however there are many resources in the internet. A good site to check out is that:

Hi Vaibhav Goel,

If you want to learn struts and you are new in this technology then it is better for you to direct move on Struts 2.0 because it is easy to understand and you can get so many plug-in for struts2.

you can also integrate Struts 1.3 in Struts 2.0.

you start Struts 2.0 with Zero configuration and add some jar for plug-in.

So cheers and start to learn Struts 2.0.

Thanks, Nishan Patel
