Subject Excellent Struts 2 Tutorial
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2007 17:13:37 GMT
Guys --

After reading about everything I could get my hands on and looping through
the "code-build-deploy-try" cycle until dizzy, I decided to drop $29.00 on
the comprehensive S2 tutorial available at

The tutorial was clearly designed with the developer in mind.  For instance,
when you reach a place where you need to make changes to a seemingly
unrelated bit of configuration, rather than leave you hanging, the author
ties the pieces together right then and there.  When snapping so many
technologies together (Struts, Spring, Hibernate, Database, Server,
Transactions, etc.) it's easy to leave the reader hanging in an ambiguous
state.  Not only does the author use a complete application, but he also
provides actual support!  That's right -- support!  After studying his
technique, I set off to develop a proof of concept Struts 2 application for
my employer.  Naturally, I had a few misunderstandings right out of the
gate.  I figured, having paid real money for this tutorial, perhaps I get
get the tutorial company to throw me a clue as to why my code wasn't working
quite right.  After sending them several configuration files (on a Sunday
afternoon nonetheless) I received an email with the lines of code that were
wrong.  I had the application running before the evening news!

I know many of you are struggling just like I was with all the puzzle pieces
that are Struts 2.  If your time is worth minimum wage, you owe it to
yourself to drop the $29.00 bucks for this tutorial and hit the ground
