1. what are the basic things i need to know before i can start of with Spring ?
Basic Java, no more. If you read a book, like Pro Spring or Spring In Action, you'll get into it without any problems. Most Spring books give a good intro to concepts like Dependency Injection or Aspect Programming. So you should not have to worry about it.
2. do i need to know struts ? (i don't know struts)
No need to know about struts. If you plan to use Spring in a web application, you can also choose Spring MVC, instead of Struts. You'll need to know about servlets and JSP.
If you plan to read Spring in Action, maybe you should wait the new version, planned to be released in August.
Spring in Action is a very good book to get you started with Spring. If you wait for the latest edition, it should have the latest Spring 2 stuff, which is exciting. Knowing Struts helps a little bit, because the book uses a few comparisons to Struts, but it is not necessary. Use the practical examples from the book and you should be all right.
