By having a look at the review on Amazon, I found out that the book aims to the intermediate to advance Struts developers. How much do we need to know about the Struts to be able to understand stuff in the book?

More specifically, in Mr.Dirk Schreckmann's review on Amazon, he said that "The title of the book is a bit of a misnomer, as it covers much more than just Struts 1.1 fundamentals. This book aims higher,....."

Correct me, if I am wrong... I just would like to know the prerequisite Struts knowledge for the book... Thanks..

Description of Thsi Book

Pro Jakarta Struts, Second Edition maps out how to use the Jakarta Struts framework, so you can solve everyday web application development challenges. This book takes an application-centric approach: the development of an application drives the Struts coverage´┐Żnot the other way around.

Improper design can lead to long term dependencies on the Struts framework, which makes code re-use difficult to achieve. But the authors helpfully discuss Struts from an anti-pattern perspective. The end result: you will learn to use Struts very effectively!

According to the preface, readers should be familiar with Servlets and JSPs, but no Struts experience is required.

I don't see any single sentence about the level of the book in the paragraph you posted... Strong understanding on the meaning of the paragraph should be needed in response to the original post...

Mr.Dirk Schreckmann,
I just had a look at your review on Amazon yesterday and found you said that the book aim to the higher level of Struts development as well... So I just need to know whether the Struts experience is required for the book or not... Since you have read the book and confirmed that no Struts experience but familiarity with Servlets and JSPs is required, it would be good for me... I am in the middle of beginner and intermediate level in using Struts....
