The Barnes & Noble Review
Apache Struts is today’s most popular framework for building Java web applications: popular enough to have a reliable set of best practices. Now those best practices have been organized into “cookbook” solutions, with full explanations of how they work and how to adapt them.

Jakarta Struts Cookbook covers everything, from setting up Struts through security, testing, and debugging. Need a boilerplate Ant file for compiling, building, and deploying Struts applications? Want to factor your application into more manageable “modules”? Generate radio buttons with values retrieved from a Collection? Validate input? Generate bar charts? Provide a “remember me” login for returning visitors? Monitor client sessions? Create a dynamic Action Form without handcoding unique Java classes? Load XML data? Map SQL data to Java objects? Integrate Struts with Hibernate? It’s all here, along with nearly 120 more recipes. Very tasty. Bill Camarda, from the May 2005 Read Only

This book is much better for the more seasoned developer, not the beginner.

A major use of Java is in writing web applications. For these, the interaction with and building of an HTML front end is perhaps the first task you face. Java Beans and JSPs have been devised to help you with part of these problems. But Struts improves, by providing a better, and easier development framework. Let's assume you've learnt the rudiments of Struts elsewhere. But sometimes there may be a problem you've got that 'surely' someone has solved. This book is replete with such instances. Siggelkow has subjectively chosen what he considers to be the most common problems. And presents each with its solution. His judgment seems pretty reasonable. You'll find the solutions to be bite-sized and easily understood, in a page or two of exposition. Be aware that this book is not about design issues in your application. That is a higher level of structure and meant for other books. This edition covers the most recent major release of Struts, 1.2. But most of the solutions look viable if you're still on an earlier version. So don't be put off simply because the cover says '1.2'.
