While the look and feel of an enterprise web application is certainly important, developers often find themselves spending far too much time on frontend presentation before coding the business logic of their application. Jakarta Struts addresses this issue by combining Java Servlets, Java ServerPages (JSPs), custom tags, and messaging resources into a unified, reusable framework. The result is a cooperative, synergistic platform that's efficient and suitable for independent developers, large development teams, and everyone in between.
Since the initial publication of Programming Jakarta Struts, the Struts open source project has become even more popular. However, documentation for this exciting technology remains woefully limited-most guides are far too basic and lack critical information needed by developers who are writing today's complex web applications. This revised and expanded edition of Programming
Jakarta Struts fills the information gap by providing up-to-date information on working with the recently released Struts 1.1.
The new edition includes completely new chapters on security and
integrating the new JavaServerFaces (JSF) APIs, JavaServer Pages Standard Tag Library (JSTL), and Expression Language (EL) with Struts.
With each enterprise system he's developed, author Chuck Cavaness has spent many grueling hours learning invaluable lessons about Struts and figuring out the most efficient way to build web applications.
He saves you time and headaches by sharing that invaluable real-world experience in a realistic, practical, "here's how to do it" guide on using the Struts Framework to its fullest potential.
