<pre>Author/s : Kevin Duffy, et al. Publisher : Wrox Category :J2EE & Distributed Computing Review by : ersin eser Rating : 9 horseshoes</pre> The book talks about Jakarta Struts, caching issues, coping with frames, navigation tips, security, search engines, and other very practical topics. This is a great book for the intermediate-level Java Web Application Developer (JWAD). If you are looking for a chance to get your hands dirty with the practical aspects of the topic, and get an understanding of the real-life problems, then the vast amount of the info and resources given in this book will definitely quench your thirst. Introductions to Jakarta Struts, Lucene, and Apache JetSpeed are great. If you are an experienced JWAD or have read other related titles from Wrox’s Professional books, you might want to take a peek at this book before buying it (or just buy the book to redirect the possible headache assets to it). Here are the downsides: chapters don’t support each other (info given previously is not being used in the following chapters), and you might have a really hard time getting the downloaded code to work (too many different files are needed, too many set-ups, and why don’t they provide ready-to-go *.war files.
