Hi Alexander!!
I'm new to Tapestry. I know Struts. I have few questions on your book.

1. Does the book deal the difference between Struts and Tapestry frameworks?
2. Developers used to Struts, how quickly can adopt to Tapestry?
3. Is Tomcat enough to develop Tapestry?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Sridhar,

It often happens that people who know Struts find it more difficult to learn Tapestry than those who are completely new to Java web development. Struts developers are used to thinking in terms of actions, while Tapestry deals with a more natural paradigm of pages, with components on them.

Having said that, I have once spent half a day to show the main principles of Tapestry to a friend who knew Struts, he spent another few days looking at my code and was very happy to become a Tapestry developer since then.

So everything finally depends on your attitude and your ability to be unprejudiced.

[ UD: Varsha, please don't add your questions to existing topics that have nothing to with it. This is called "hijacking" and not a nice thing to do. If you have a question to which you can't find the answer using the forum search, just start a new thread.
