Hey, I have good knowledge of Java, and have passed SCJP with 87%. But, I have almost negligible knowledge of servlets. How long approximately do you think it would take me to learn servlets to an extent that I could both write commercial applications using servlets, as well as be well prepared for the servlets part of SCWCD? Also, are there any sample projects that are of mid-size (larger and slightly more complex that the examples found in tutorials) that I could use to get a feel for industry applications...having source code would be most helpful.

As an aside, how important is it to know about servlets in order to learn struts?

Thanks.

I wouldn't touch a framework without, at least, a rudimentary understanding of the core technologies that it was built on.

hi
it took one month for me to learn servlets and JSPs
right now im looking at EJBs
first of all learn JDBC and try out some prgs
then download flakner book from http://www.theserverside.com/books/addisonwesley/ServletsJSP/index.tss
it is really very good book for beginners
download tomcat server and try out examples in that book
and do assignments from http://www.dmc.dit.ie/hugh/hugh_FT2283.htm
hope this helps u

I'd go even further to say that until you understand the technologies, how can you determine whether you need a framework at all, and if so, which to choose?
