Subject Re: Any hint of JQuery on struts2 tutorial, thanks!
Date Wed, 29 Apr 2009 04:29:57 GMT

Perhaps you are looking for some basic "tidbits" you may commonly use:

a) Calendar pop-up
b) Ajax calls with JSON response from Struts
c) Simple element hide/show

Can you build a list like this of things you need to build your UI or are
you looking more for skill building sources?
