Hi,
I am quite new to struts and I am willing to lean it. I am not sure which book is good for startup. So if anybody could help me find a good book for struts then it will be a great help for me. I have good understanding of core java and servlet/jsp.

Please help me finding a good book or good study material.

Are you looking to learn Struts 1.X or 2.X? They are quite different. Struts 2.X used to be called WebWorks so it's not just like a later version.

Either way the online documentation is a good starting point. It is very thorough and provides a good guide to all the moving parts.

Our struts FAQ is a good place to start.
And if you don't have a good reason to learn Struts 1 (i.e. you are maintaining a Struts 1 application), don't bother with it. It has some serious architectural problems that Struts 2 was designed to fix.

Thanks for the advice!!

I have gone through the comparison between Struts 1.x and 2.x. Indeed struts 2 is far better, more flexible and easy to implement than 1. I don't have to maintain any struts application so I think I can start learning Struts2.

Thanks again!!

 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
