I am a really big fan of the Jakarta project.
I've used everything from Log4J to Struts.
I think if you are doing JSP/Servlets than Struts is the next logical step.

I agree. I also think struts is a great learning tool because you can start the process at a higher level and work your way down.

I agree as well!! JBoss is the cat's a@#!! I love a world where everything is free and the source is open. If you're brave enough, dive into the source code of the different projects. It can be an excellent learning tool.
Btw, I just showed my boss Rick's Hello World application (the build files, ejb's, etc..) from his new book. His jaw dropped to the floor when I showed him how easy it was to refactor the application from using simple Beans to EJB's.
Looks like ant, junit, and jboss is the new standard.
Where were all these tools 3 years ago. I could have really used them then.
Oh yeah, we're also using Struts now as well. Excellent framework!!

This article is giving a landscape of all alternatives of JSP. You will find another framework including Barracuda, Turbine(Jakarta), WebWork, Expresso, etc. Guys from Barracuda project also provides framework comparisons between Barracuda and Struts.
As for Struts, I dont think it has something with XP. Actually, the book covers the following tools:
  • unit test tools: JUnit, ServletUnit, Cactus
  • functional test: HTTPUnit, JUnitPerf, JMeter
  • build tools: ANT

  • My 2 cents.
