He's wrong, alas. I had so much trouble figuring out what Struts actually WAS, this I ended up writing a magazine article to explain it - it's scheduled to be the headline article for the April 2002 issue of JavaPro.
Here's what I said on the subject not too long ago:

Tim,
Kind of funny how I can be wrong about a personal opinion, but all I can say is I've learned about 80-90% of what I've needed to about Struts from that web site, but of course that's me.

Actually, so did I, but it took longer than I thought necessary to do so, which is why I wrote the article. On the main Struts web page sidebar layout "is" (see below) such that the struts tags are apparently significant and the api part "is" almost invisible. That's unfortunate, since in fact they carry almost equal weight.
I quote "is" because apparently yesterday, the taglibs got shunted off to the user guide and the javadocs remain alone on the front page.
Javadocs are very important to me, but they suffer from the drawback that they show everything in detail and everything has the same weight, whether it's a key component or some obscure feature. That's why I like a good "executive summary" as well. Preferably with some graphics.
Actually, the javadoc framework is such that that with some extra effort and a doclet or two, the tags and classes could both be documented as part of the same bundle. There's another jakarta project (Alexandria) that may eventually make it so.
It's not that the Struts docs are useless or even that it's underdocumented. However, to help people learn what's what when they first encounter a system, its documentation has to be pyramidal, introducing only what's essential for each level or people will either be intimidated and turn away from it or they'll use it incorrectly because they can't tell what they should be using and what the context of use should be.
I think that the two lower levels of the pyramid (tutorials and javadocs/tag docs) are pretty well defined, but the two upper ones (api overview and "executive summary") could stand some work. It's actually quite common for these layers to be weak in large projects which have reshaped themselves as they were developed - the people working on the project have become so familiar with the relative importance of things, that they tend to take it for granted.
