Hi,

Do you recommend your book for someone new to Struts? I've no knowledge of Struts 1.0 and since your book speaks on Struts 2.0, will I be able to understand the concepts?

Thanks,
Babu

The book assumes no knowledge of Struts 2 (or Struts 1 for that matter ;)

Dave,

I just want to know if the book is an easy-read. Is it something that I will enjoy reading or is it something that might put me to sleep?

Thank you.

Depends--are you really tired?

I strove to keep the tone conversational, light, and as irreverent as I could get away with. One goal was to make it seem as though we were sitting next to each other, solving problems as they came up, etc.--more like a mentoring session than a dry recitation of JavaDocs.

I don't like boring writing, either.
