A code-intensive guide to using the Jakarta Struts Framework tobuild Java Web applications
Developing Web applications with Java became considerably easierwith the advent of JavaServer Pages (JSP) and servlets.Unfortunately, when used for large-scale applications, JSPs havebeen less successful-- they can become bloated with code, resultingin applications that are slow and inefficient. Jakarta Struts helpsprovide the solution to this problem. Struts handles a number ofspecific tasks involved in controlling how servlets, EJBs, andother components work together. It also makes use of JSP customtags to help developers create interactive, form-basedapplications.
James Goodwill has loaded each chapter with real-world codeexamples that show how to build applications using Jakarta Struts.Written for experienced Java programmers who need to learn how touse Struts to build enterprise-level applications, this book beginsby examining the concepts and architecture of the Struts Frameworkof technologies. It then explains how to use
Build JavaBean and model components
Build view components
Build controller components
Access relational databases
Work with Struts HTML-based forms
Work with action mappings and deployment descriptors
Build JavaBean objects using the Struts Digester
Build internationalized Web applications
The companion Web site contains electronic versions of all codeexamples in the book, plus fully operating versions of theapplications described in the book.
