Jakarta Struts: Seven Lessons from the Trenches

ONJava Newsletter for 10/31/2002

Dear Reader,

This week on ONJava.com, O'Reilly's new "Programming Jakarta Struts" author Chuck Cavaness describes his experiences when his Internet company decided to adopt the open source Apache Jakarta Struts framework. Chuck spent months figuring out how to use it in order to build a company application. If you're a Java programmer charged with developing Web applications using servlets and JSPs, you'll find a lot of insight and valuable information in the seven lessons Chuck had to learn, the hard way.

Also this week, regular contributor Satya Komatineni returns with a feature on Aspire for the Apache Jakarta Tomcat Web container. Aspire.jar is a free, open source, .jar file that can be used for declarative data access, configuration, logging and factory services needs. For Java developers who are continuing to adopt Tomcat as their primary development platform, this .jar file could save lot of time, while providing a highly flexible data architecture.

And finally this week, O'Reilly "JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition" author Hans Bergsten concludes his series of articles on the JavaServer Pages Tag Libraries (JSTL) version 1.0. In this last installment, he looks at how you can fully leverage the JSTL classes when developing JSP custom actions.

Talk to you again next week.
