Well, after numerous posts in here about Thomas' newsletter article on STRUTS 1.1 I FINALLY got the example working.
And it only took 2 days!!
This was of course no fault of the article but my own ignorance when it comes to STRUTS as I am really new to it.
I just have to say that putting the pieces together and running across all the errors I encountered really helped the learning process and I was able to better understand what was going on versus copying a bunch of code and saying, "ooh neat. It works".
So for those of you out there struggling with STRUTS....Stick with it. It's worth it and if I can get it working (with the help of my friends at javaranch) so can you.
Now if I could just win Sue's book...
I do have one question though for those of you who are struggling and for those that know STRUTS very well.
What would you consider the average learning time for STRUTS? 1 week, 1 month, 6 months, 1 year??

Hi there,
For me it took about 1 month full-time to feel comfortable with using it's basic features (i.e. struts-config.xml, action classes, action forms, etc.) It took me another month to feel comfortable incorporating some of its extended features (i.e. validator framework, dynaforms, tiles, design plugins, extending the request controller, etc.)

Well, for those that don't mind dropping the $20 for the book (assuming of course you don't win one ...you can reduce your learning time considerably...to probably days.

Well, I will probably be buying one if I don't win one.
