Pro Apache Struts with Ajax by John Carnell

Book Description:

Pro Apache Struts with Ajax maps out how to use the Apache Struts MVC web framework, so you can solve everyday web application development challenges. This book takes an application-centric approach: the development of an application drives Struts along with Ajax coverage – not the other way around.Improper design can lead to long-term dependencies on the Struts framework, which makes code reuse difficult to achieve. This is the only book of its kind, covering the Struts 1.2 framework. It also covers forthcoming evolutions into Shale and lightweight WebWork/Struts Ti. Authors Carnell and Harrop discuss Struts from an antipattern perspective, and the end result is that you’ll learn to use Struts very effectively!

One of many questions I all the time get from folks once they discover out I’m an creator is “Why did you get into writing?” Whereas it’s essentially a easy query to ask, the reply will not be so clear or concise. If I needed to summarize into one sentence why I wrote this guide, it must be for one cause and one cause alone: I really like expertise and I really like constructing issues with it. I’ve been coding since I used to be 12 years outdated.I’ve labored with dozens of applied sciences, and for the final 4 years I’ve had the chance to construct enterprise-level software program utilizing a number of completely different open supply initiatives. I’ve been persistently blown away with the standard and performance these applied sciences convey to the desk. One in all my favourite open supply applied sciences is the Apache Group’s Struts growth framework. The Struts framework is a strong Java growth framework that basically permits Java internet builders to deal with constructing purposes and never infrastructure.

After I labored on the primary version of this guide, I had two targets in thoughts: First, I needed to jot down a guide that may introduce readers to the Struts growth framework, however wouldn’t overwhelm them with all the nitty-gritty particulars related with writing Struts purposes. I personally assume most individuals, even superior builders, study finest by doing and seeing relatively than studying by way of tons of particulars. Second, I needed folks to see how Struts could possibly be used to resolve on a regular basis issues they encounter in constructing their very own internet purposes.

That’s the reason there may be such a spotlight all through the guide on the idea of figuring out widespread design errors (aka antipatterns) and how Struts can be utilized to resolve these issues. Nevertheless, this guide all the time sticks to the core tenet {that a} framework by no means absolves the developer of the accountability of designing an software. The Struts framework, like every framework, is a device, and like every device can be utilized inappropriately. That’s the reason this guide emphasizes the significance of fine design even when utilizing a framework like Struts.

Good code isn’t one thing that unexpectedly seems. It’s one thing that evolves from forethought and clear design. This guide has been designed with each the intermediate and superior developer in thoughts. The appliance being constructed on this guide may be very easy and simple to comply with, so anybody with a fundamental understanding of JSPs and servlets ought to have the ability to in a short time comply with alongside. Nevertheless, at each level my coauthor and I all the time attempt to name out how easy design selections and design patterns can have a major impression on the long-term well being of extensibility.

Within the second version of this guide, we’ve got up to date all the materials to Struts 1.1. We’ve included whole chapters on most of the new Struts 1.1 options (just like the Tiles and Validator frameworks). As well as, we discover a number of different open supply applied sciences, like ObjectRelationalBridge, Lucene, and Velocity, that when utilized in tandem with Struts can considerably scale back the quantity of effort and time it takes to construct widespread items of software performance. I assume ultimately, I don’t think about this guide a one-way narrative the place you learn my ideas on a selected matter.
