Hi All,

I am looking for an open source struts project to contribute so that i can gain real time experience in Struts.When i searched for "struts" in Sourceforge.net,freshmeat.com it is showing projects very high profiled projects like adding features to struts etc.

If any body is working on any struts related project and if you think that will be helpful to gain experience please let me know.

Your best bet is to buy a book or start with our FAQ and learn it by doing. Struts isn't so terribly complicated that one can't learn it after a couple of days playing with it. If it were complicated, it wouldn't be a very useful framework.

Learn Struts 1.x. Following book is very easy to follow & covers everything:

Professional Jakarta Struts by James Goodwill and Richard Hightower John Wiley & Sons © 2004

Do project/framework discussed in this book:
Struts.in.Action Manning Pub 2003 is Bible of Struts (Covers ver 1.x)
Struts2.in.Action Manning Pub 2008

These are best books for Struts framework.

Spring has it's own front controller, Spring Web Flow. It is also common to see Spring in use alongside Struts with Struts as the front controller and Spring handling object creation, data access, dependency injection and other tasks.

The one more reason i want to learn Spring is it has lot of things common with EJB 3.0 (I am just thinking).Actually i cleared my SCBCD 1.5 exam today.
