I've usually had to slog through the web to find these kinds of resources. There are Struts articles and tutorials in a variety of places on the web(most of these have been documented in this forum). There are 3 Struts books that I know of - 2 are yet to be published and the other has had horrific reviews. Chuck Cavaness' book that will be published by O'Reilly is available for review at www.theserverside.com. If you're interested in Struts I would be glad to put together a resource list. Ant has a pretty good user's manual. I've had mixed success with finding documentation for other Jakarta products I've been interested in. You might be interested in "Java Tools for eXtreme Programming - Mastering Open Source Tools Including Ant, JUnit, and Cactus" by Richard Hightower and Nicholas Lesiecki. Hope you find some of this useful, Mars
I think I've heard the review period of the struts on theserverside.com ends on July 31. Its really a good book for people who: - have some experience with servlet/jsp - are interested in oo-design discussions - have interest in struts. The guys in the struts-user group like it too very much. Axel

Thanks guys. I'm just getting started and I seemed to have tripped in the doorway. I'll take whatever you have as far URLs, etc.
The link to the review on theserverside.com is article on struts on theserverside.com It still worked as of August 4, 2002 though the review process has ended. The Jakarta site's Struts page is a good source. Laurie Haischer
Steve Loughran and I just completed a book on Ant. It covers full J2EE project development and sophisticated build process automation, including coverage of tools like XDoclet and Middlegen. Also, there is detailed coverage of Ant's extensibility capabilities, particularly in the area of writing custom Ant tasks.
