I heard and I basically think that books published from O'Reilly are like chapter-by-chapter style, i.e., readers should read the book in chapter by chapter in order to understand the concepts in the later chapters...
Books from APress and Wiley (formerly Wrox) are like reference style... Readers get the book, open to any chapter and easily understand the concept in that chapter, without reading the previous chapters...
I just would like to know which style your book is in? Chapter-by-chapter style or reference style? Thanks a lot for being here in the Ranch...

Ko Ko,
For beginers, the initial three chapters are of tutorial nature and will be a sequential read. A simple (and stupid) two field form is used to explain the concepts.
There is no single project extended through the book. I dont build up on previous chapters. Chapters 4, 6, 9 and 10 are of "random access" nature.
These chapters point out problems faced in building real applications and provide solutions as listings with explanations.
So, I guess the book is a mixture of two styles.

Thanks a lot for your reply, Mr.Srikanth Shenoy. Since it is for both beginners and experienced people, I guess I should buy this book, even though I don't win in the book promotion... Cos I don't have any Struts book as my own... I usually read Struts books from the university library... :roll:
