I'm in urgent need of a book concerning Struts and JSP. After a recommendation I ordered James Goodwill's "Mastering Jakarta Struts" but I was told today that it can't be delivered within next two weeks. Anything else worth buying?
By the way, I need a book about Struts because I'm new to a project using Struts and I'm expected to make some changes (like making a tree structure collapsable etc). Right now I can't really tell the difference between Struts and JSP.

Struts can be a little confusing, especially if you come from a Servlet/JSP background.
The key to Struts is ActionClasses (the front controller), the config file, where navigation, actions, and links are mapped, and Form beans, that help with validation. Those are the basics, and you build from there.
I have a few tutorials on Struts on my website. They'll demonstrate the basics. I highly recommend you check them out, just to get an idea on what is going on with a struts app. From there, hunker down with a good book.
