HI..

Yes, you can direct move on Struts 2.0.
But first atleast know flow of struts 1.3 because you get better idea and difference of two version.

Struts 2.0 is easy to learn and understand. Coding with struts 2.0 is easy to develop.

Even you can get easy plug-in for Struts 2.0.

With Struts 2.0 you can easy integrate Struts 1.3 and Spring framwork too.

So better to direct start Struts 2.0.

Struts 2.x is more advanced and easy to understand compare to Struts 1.x.

You also get easy plug-in for Struts 2.x

Struts 1 vs.
● Action
● ActionForm
● ActionForward
● struts-config.xml
● ActionServlet
● RequestProcessor
● validation.xml

Struts 2

● Action
● Action or POJO
● Result
● struts.xml
● FilterDispatcher
● Interceptors
● Action-validation.xml


You can learn it from Roseindia site Struts 2 tutorial .



Thanks,
Nishan Patel.

Hi Nishan,

IMHO, I don't see the advantage of also checking out the older version if you're just trying out struts for the first time.

It's like studying EJB 2.1 and EJB 3 at the same time.

It might get a little confusing.

Thoughts?

I'm with Paul; if you don't know either version of Struts there's no particular reason to learn Struts 1 (unless your boss tells you to!)
