hi all

could someone suggest a book in which a practical web application is built from start to finish and deployed, like there is one for "ASP.NET Problem, Design, Solution" or something like "PHP and MySQL" in which there is a section "Building Practical PHP and MySQL projects" in the end.

Are you sure you want to use a framework at this point? I'd advise getting a good handle on basic JSP and Servlets before diving off into a framework.

Otherwise, all you learn is the framework.

Are you trying to learn servlets or Struts?

It's probably better to learn servlets (the underlying technology) before getting too invested in a particular framework.

Hi,
I've been doing a lot of PHP, then Java, then I wanted to do web in Java and I read about frameworks, so I started with Spring.
I've done some simple websites with spring, but I still didn't understand some stuff.
After I passed SCJP I wanted to do another certificate, so I got a book for SCWCD - Head First, Servlets and Jsp.
Then I realized that I should have got this book before learning Spring.
All I wanted to say is, that you should get a book about servlets or/and jsp, and if everything is clear, then learn some framework. And I am saying this from my personal experience.
I would recommend the above mentined book - Head First, Servlets and Jsp from o'reilly.
