Hi Sue,
(NB: I know there's a Struts book up for grabs but I can't remember which forum to post questions on. I hope this is it!)
I have purchased and/or read three other books on Struts:
1. Wiley's, "Mastering Jakarta Struts".
2. O'Reilly's book on Struts.
3. Manning's book on Struts.
Manning's is the best by far in terms of readability, comprehensiveness and reliability. One thing I wish it had offered more treatment on, however, is usage of the Struts tag libraries -- somewhat like the Wiley book does but more up-to-date along with extended examples of how to use logic tags (say) with collections, etc. and how to handle boundary conditions (ex: a lot of the 'bean:' tags croak on null values.)
How are the Struts tag libraries handled in your book?
Thanks,
Darryl

Hi Darryl. I go into details on how to use each of the tag libraries in Chapter 8, Working with the Struts Custom Tag Libraries. I also go into details on working with international applications using the tag lib actions. Hope you decide to get 1 more of the Struts books .
