I need help...It's bad enough that I've had to learn Java in a rather accellerated pace, now I need to understand and use Struts... Is there and EASY tome or site that can illuminate the subject or am I just doomed?
Thanks!

O'Reilly should be releasing what looks like it will be a good book on Struts this year. Most of it was posted at The ServerSide for pre-publication review, in MS Word format, and I think you can still get it there (although you have to register).
I think there is at least one Struts book currently on the market (unless some others have been released in the past couple of months), but it has been almost unanimously dogged as being very poor.
A good site for all that is struts is Ted Husted's About Struts site. Ted is one of the principle architects of Struts.

Definitely don't buy this one.
Struts Book By Vic Cenkevich
It was the first published book on Struts and I actually threw $60 bucks at it . Probably the worst technical book ever.
Here's another good
tutorial.
I find that rather than approach struts as single rigid framework, it's easier to think of it as a collection of useful pieces of code( Actually just like real life struts ).
The Controller,Taglibs,Tiles,Validator,database pool,beanUtils can be used independently of each other or all together. Try learning them one at a time and most importantly be patient.
Cheers
Ravi
