This week's book giveaway is in the Agile and Other Processes forum. We're giving away four copies of Real-World Software Development: A Project-Driven Guide to Fundamentals in Java and have Dr. Raoul-Gabriel Urma & Richard Warburton on-line! See this thread for details.
Originally posted by Michael Khan: Does this book describes development on any specific IDE? for example: IBM WSAD. If so, which one? Does this book also come with a CD that contains the book in PDF? Thanks!
Hi Michael, The book does not describe the development specific to any IDE. The book does not have CD either. The downloadable code (working examples) for two chapters (pretty basic code - one for Struts Beginner and the other for Tiles) is available from the publisher's website. The rest of the code is inline as listings in the book/ebook.
It's good that the book is not focused to any IDE, because this way it is easier to learn and understand all the topics. I mean, is really great if you can write the struts-config.xml by hand knowing what every tag means. Then, when you develop an application you can use IDEs like WebSphere Studio which come with Struts tools to help you create the Struts elements in a graphical way and that generates the struts-config.xml (struts configuration file) automatically.
