Good morning everyone! Thank you for the welcome and the opportunity to do this. I look forward to answering some questions on WebWork and OpenSymphony in general, especially about the upcoming book and WebWork 2.2.

Just a brief note about the book. "WebWork Live" is geared for those developers migrating from other web frameworks (including the most popular) and for developers who are used to the pure-Servlet model. I hope to show the benefits of the core features of the framework, including the command pattern, the abstraction of http specific objects (request/response), and the interceptor approach. More importantly, the "sample" application developed for the book will become a real-world application, not just a mere demo project. For more information about the book, please see description on the SourceBeat website and take a look at the Table of Contents.

The final version should be available sometime in late June/early July. Currently, the book is being written on WebWork 2.1; however, I plan to update the book to 2.2 as soon as possible.


Cheers,
Matthew
