Hi Sue
I want to know whether your book covers
struts custom tags.
I heard it is good idea to jump on to JSTL instead of using struts tags in JSP pages.
your comments please..
Thanks

Hi. Yes, chapter 7 'Working with the Struts Custom Tag Libraries' covers all of the tag libraries provided with the release. There is now an overlap with some of the actions provided in the JSTL. If the action exists in the JSTL, then you should use it from there. Remember that the JSTL requires a Servlet 2.3 container, while Struts only requires Servlet 2.2. This might or might not make a difference to your application. Not all of the actions from the Struts tag libs are in the JSTL. Also, if you want to you the expression language support in your Struts actions that aren't in the JSTL, look at the struts-el taglibs in the contrib folder. On a seperate note, I've also got a book called 'JSTL: Practical Guide for JSP Programmers' (MK) coming out in the next month that fully covers everything you need to know about how to use the JSTL. Same publisher, so I'll have them do a book give-away for it also
HTH.
Sue
