I've been working with Struts 1.1 for a few years. Is your book appropriate for someone who has struts 1.1 experience, and needs to understand the differences between 1.1 and 2.0? Does your book cover OGNL? and Xwork? Do you have any pointers for someone upgrading to Struts 2.1?
Thanks.

Hi Nancy,
[QB]I've been working with Struts 1.1 for a few years. Is your book appropriate for someone who has struts 1.1 experience, and needs to understand the differences between 1.1 and 2.0?

-->You don't have to have prior experience with Struts to understand my book. If you are, however, you can quickly view the differences between version 1 and 2 in a section in Introduction.

Does your book cover OGNL? and Xwork?
--> Yes, of course. It's hard to imagine learning Struts 2 without firm understanding of OGNL. It is covered in Chapter 4. OGNL is not hard at all. If you know the JSP 2.0 EL or have been working with JSTL, then you'll feel at home.
There's also discussion of XWork, as Struts 2 uses it internally. You'll also use many classes from the XWork API once you switch to Struts 2.

Do you have any pointers for someone upgrading to Struts 2.1?'
--> The book is based on Struts 2.0.11, except for the last chapter (AJAX programming) that was tested against Struts 2.1 beta. You need to upgrade to soon-to-be-released 2.1 if you're planning to use AJAX. AJAX, by the way, is seamlessly supported in Struts 2.
