I could never forget those nightmares where I was in front of my pc-
chewing my pen and tearing my valuable hair figuring out a way to run a decent struts program .Groping something for the first time could be so tough sometimes.
That rift in the lute got healed by imran bhaia (he is our teacher now) and rifat. Though I’m tyro enough in struts to advise others …… but, hey ,who’d better understand problems of a novice than another novice [:D] !
This is first document that helped me back then . Hope it may come to rescue u ,too. :)
u can also join sun's jsp forum , believe me its an awesome forum where everyone (& they r expert too) is on his toe even to answer ur most silly and stupidest question ( about struts,ofcourse :P).
