Back in the day, I used Struts in Action by Ted Husted. The Ranch's Struts forum might actually be the best place to get lots of feedback.

I doubt there will be a HF Struts book. Struts, as much as I love it, is over-the-hill now and so the demand for books on it would be low.

why should they?
Struts is hardly a core technology, it's on its return, and there's a complete library full of books about it already (including several from the same publisher).

With sentiment ever more moving towards NOT using Struts, many people seeing it as an example of how things should not be done, I don't think you'll see too many new books about it.

sorry to be late to this thread -

we talk a little bit about struts in the scwcd book, certainly not enough to warrant buying the book if that's all you're interested in. i think the ranchers are correct, at this point i don't imagine we'll do a hf struts book...sorry.

I would recommend "Professional Jakarta Struts" -- James Goodwill and Rick Hightower.
I agree. Here's the link:
