Subject Re: move from PHP to Struts
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2006 09:15:53 GMT

  I want to share my exp. with Bogdan. I m also new to struts. I started it
with sound backround in Java, JSP and Servlets. I read various articles on
struts and it's benefits and then I deployed Lesson 1 from Rick's tutorial.
Initially I face some problems in understanding struts framework and
specially  creating, handling  and managing ActionForms, Actions, Struts
Config and But now, I feel comfortable
myself with STRUTS basics (not implemented Dynaforms, validation framework,
tiles etc.)

    What I like in struts is that,

-- it *force the developer to separate presentation, business and
persistence logic.
-- Maintenance becomes very easy. If u wanna add anything in future, then it
will be easier.
-- form validation and automatically populating form fields if validaton
fails is great feature.
-- validating form fields using validate() method and reseting form fields
using reset() method, has saved a lot of developer's time and efforts.
-- displaying error messages using ActionErrors.

These are some benefits which I really like. There are still more benefits
of struts which can be utilized by using Dynaforms,validation framework,
internationalization (118N) etc.

   I suggest Rick's site is great place to start with struts and in books I
like Mastering Jakarta Struts and Struts in Action.
