Pro Apache Struts with Ajax by John Carnell, Rob Harrop, Kunal Mittal
In this book, the authors take an application-centric approach: the development of an application drives the Struts along with Ajax coverage, rather than the other way around. Chapter titles include: What We Do Wrong: Web Antipatterns Explained; Managing Business Logic with Struts; Architecting the Data Access Tier with ObjectRelationalBridge; Building Flexible Front-Ends with the Tiles Framework; Dynamic Forms using Ajax and the Struts Validator Framework; Speeding Struts Development with XDoclet, and Logging and Debugging. Appendices discuss JavaEdge setup, Struts development tools, and Apache Struts Ti/WebWork. The end result: you will learn to use Struts very effectively!
