Rick Hightower (www.rickhightower.com) is a developer who enjoys working with Java, J2EE, Ant, Struts, Web Services and XDoclet. Rick is also the CTO of Trivera Technologies (www.triveratch.com), a global training, mentoring, and consulting company focusing on enterprise development. Rick is a regular contributor to IBM developerWorks and has written more than 10 IBM developerWorks tutorials on subjects ranging from EJB to Web Services to XDoclet to Struts to Custom Tags.
While working at eBlox, Rick and the eBlox team used Struts and J2EE to build two frameworks and an ASP (application service provider) for online ecommerce stores. They started using Struts long before the 1.0 release.
Rick recently helped put together a well-received course for Trivera on Struts that runs on Tomcat 4.x, Resin EE 2.x, IBM WebSphere 5.0 (WSAD), JBoss 3.x, and WebLogic 8.1. When not traveling around the country teaching the Trivera Struts course (our bestseller), speaking at conferences about Struts, or doing Struts consulting and mentoring, Rick enjoys drinking coffee at an all night coffee shop and writing code, writing about Struts and other Java, J2EE and XP topics, and writing about himself in the third person.

Other books like Kick Start Struts are very bad designed for "more dummies" and they obscure things adding other frameworks like Torque!?
You will need additional reference material after you get into serious development - but, as a "Hello World", this book is great.
Overall, the book is okay if you've known Struts a bit before and just want to refresh your memory. If you're a Struts starter, try others.
(Reviewed by Otto Yuen, 12-Aug-2008)
The examples left a lot to be desired - none of them, except for the "employee" application in chapter 14, were complete. I don't know, maybe this was didactic - I learned a lot about Struts while fumbling around, trying to fill in the gaps in their samples.
You'll need to have a _very_ firm handle on JSP's and Servlets if you're going to make any sense of this book. Chapter 2 reviews JSP's, but it's strictly a review; you had better know, for example, the difference between session scope and page scope before starting this book.
I also liked the short, to-the-point chapters on using Struts with Eclipse, databases, Tiles, etc. This is the only book I've read that made it clear how to use Tiles.
There are two down-sides to this book. First, it has an poor index, which is normally the kiss of death on a technical book. Secondly, the example code that is on the web-site is a mess! Those are the reasons I gave this a 4-star instead of a 5-star rating. (Some of the code may be out of date, too, but I have given up expecting a printed book to be current with programming API's that seem to change daily.)
On top of all that, the price is right!
Also, the way information is presented in the book does not work for me. For instance when talking the authors are building examples after examples and then tell the reader that in practice this approach is unlikely to work. What is wrong with just getting to the point and telling people how to do it right. I have to confess I fell asleep repeatedly while trying to get to the point in the book where the authors may explain how to use tiles appropriately in large projects.
