The first version of Struts was enthusiastically received by the Java community. Its easy factorisation of GUI coding and back end business logic, in a fashion that built upon existing Model-View-Controller approaches, proved compelling. So too, of course, was its free, open source nature. As experience was gained, Struts was upgraded to version 1.1, which this book fully discusses, in the typical competent O'Reilly tradition that readers will be familiar with. If you are still using Struts 1.0, and have no inclination to migrate, then you probably don't need this book. But Cavaness suggests that you should give 1.1 a consideration, and this book is persuasive argument. Some chapters are useful, but mundane, like those on internationalisation, exception handling and logging. Definitely important capabilities. So much so that you can reasonably expect any major application to have these. The only question is, how exactly does it enable them? Struts handles these quite capably. I have not read the first edition of this book. But this edition indeed seems very comprehensive and useful.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Overall Rating: Well done! This book will be a valuable teaching and reference tool. Teaching Value: Excellent! An essential book on this topic. Reference Value: A complete reference. I would not need any additional reference on this topic. This book presents an explanation of Struts that is both easy to comprehend and one that follows the design process from beginning to end. It's a complete guide to the Struts project, taking developers through concepts, design and implementation and explains the Model 2 design pattern in depth. Installation and setup are thoroughly documented, and every configuration option is clearly explained. JSP programming within the context of Struts is explored, with tons of practical examples that use both the standard JSP tag libraries and Struts additions. You'll also become adept at programming multitiered applications, interacting with EJBs from struts applications, and handling complex validation and logging through the Struts provided packages and tools. Also covers how to create your own rules and to use it outside of Struts. Whether you've been struggling with Struts, or you want to get started in Model 2 programming, or you're an advanced Struts programmer wanting to fully exploit this powerful framework, overall I'd say this is an excellent resource.Was this review helpful?

A worth having this book ¿ I have been using Struts for past two years now, I learned most of it from some tutorials/articles and documentation on the net. I was always looking for good book on struts a single place to resolve my doubts. This book almost completely covers all the things you need to design and develop a strut based web application, I like following chapters Exception Handling, Internationalization and Struts, Logging in Struts and Addressing Performance. Though this book need to have more details on Struts taglibs with examples but I like the book and recommended it to all Struts developers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I have been using Struts for almost a year now and have been frustrated at the quantity and quality documentation. This book (among others) comes along at a great time for Struts and Struts developers. I found this to be a book for Struts and so much more. It's full of helpful information relating to real world models and has went beyond the other materials. I love the book and recommended it to all Struts developers.Was this review helpful?
