Looks like O’Reilly just shipped the 2nd edition of the awesome Programming Jakarta Struts book written by Chuck Cavaness. I loved the 1st edition and blogged about it last year when I taught my last Struts class.

According to the press release, this second edition contains:

  • An overview of the concepts involved in writing web applications
  • Installation, setup, and configuration instructions for getting Struts up and running
  • A thorough discussion of how Struts implements MVC or the Model 2 approach.
  • Logging, validation, and exception handling
  • Using tiles
  • Writing internationalization and localization code
  • Practical, real-world best practices for web applications

The new stuff for the 2nd edition includes a complete revamp that makes this book completely up-to-date with Struts 1.1. New material also includes JSTL, JavaServer Faces (JSF) APIs as well as all-new chapters on JSF, JSTL/EL, and security.
