    How can I learn Struts 2?

    The best place to start with Struts 2 is the Struts 2 Documentation Home Page There is extensive documentation and sample code available on that site. As Struts 2 is very new and has far less market penetration than Struts 1, other resources are fairly scarce.


    There is a page in the Struts 2 documentation with pointers to numerous tutorials


    Struts 2 in Action: by Donald Brown, Chad Michael Davis, and Scott Stanlick

    Apache Struts 2 Web Application Development: by Dave Newton released in June 2009 covers the latest version of Struts i.e. Struts 2.1. The book is useful for beginners and experienced people in Struts.

    Ian Roughley has also written a smaller book, Starting Struts 2 that is available as a free PDF or a dead-tree book. At about 100 pages, it is more an introduction than an in-depth study of the Struts 2 architecture.

    Another book that is available as a free download is Struts 2 From Square One by Ted Husted. This book is part of a course Ted teaches, so there are other resources, sample code and slides as well as in-person training, available.
