I am completely new to Struts. I have come across two book names by searching through all the previous posts on this forum which are

Programming Jakarta Struts ( O'Reilly )
Struts in Action ( Manning )

Can anyone suggest me which one I should chose?

Thanx in advance... :

Hey guys!!!

today I cleared da exam securing 82%. It was quite difficult as compared to SCJP 1.4(scored 95%) I think it's ok, having no prior knowledge of servlets n jsp. I prepared for 1.5 months. followed HFSJ. thanx to HFSJ authors. for me HFSJ mock exam score + 20% formula didn't work out coz I had scored 70% in HSFJ mock exam. did Jwebplus mock exams too.

neways, now it's time to relax for sometime.
What should be the correct answer for the following question

Consider the following description of a tag in a TLD:

Replaces emoticons such as , , and with images.
Which of the following statements regarding the above tag are correct?

a It is an empty tag.
b It may be used as an empty tag.
c It must have a body.
d It must implement BodyTag interface.
e It may take an attribute named 'name'. But if present, its value must be dynamic.

I think it should be 'b' only but answer says 'b' & 'd'.

Could anyone help me out on this???
Hi Sathish,
