Building web applications that are maintainable and extensible requires a significant amount of design and planning before even a single line of code can be written. However, by leveraging development frameworks, many of the challenges of web-based development can be overcome. This book acts as a roadmap to demonstrate how to use the Jakarta Struts framework to solve everyday web application development problems.
Although Struts is rapidly becoming a de facto standard for Java web applications, it can only provide for part of your application. Therefore, this book concentrates not only on how to use Struts to develop the core architecture of a web application, but also on how to use other Jakarta projects to create a fully open source web application. It uses ObjectRelationalBridge to provide the 0/R mapping for the data layer; Lucene to provide a search engine; Velocity to provide a templating language for the user interface; and of course Ant is used to tie the build process together.
Knowledge of J2EE web application development with JSR servlets, EJBs, and design patterns is preferred because this is a guide to using the frameworks in the "right" way and not an introductory tutorial to them.
What does this book cover?
Over the course of the book, we develop a full-scale web application to demonstrate the use of the following aspects of the Jakarta projects:
- Using Struts to build a flexible and dynamic MVC web application
- Using Struts to simplify HTML form construction and form validation
- Avoiding locking business logic into the Struts framework
- Using ObjectRelationalBridge to significantly cut down on the amount of data-access
- code that needs to be written and maintained
- Using Velocity to cleanly separate presentation and Java code
- Using Lucene to incorporate search engine functionality into a web application
- Coordinating the deployment and build process with Ant
- The Challenges of Web Application Development
- Creating a Struts-based MVC Application
- Form Presentation and Validation with Struts
- Managing Business Logic with Struts
- Building a Data Access Tier with ObjectRelationalBridge
- Templates and Velocity
- Creating a Search Engine with Lucene
- Building the JavaEdge Application with Ant and Anthill

Jeff has published articles on several Jakarta Apache open source projects in Dr. Dobb's Journal, CNET's Builder.com, and JavaWorld. Jeff has a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from Carnegie Mellon University. He currently works for the Gossamer Group in Austin, Texas, on content management and web application syndication systems. He gets to play with all the latest open source projects there. Jeff also co-authored Professional Struts Applications, Building Portals with the Java Portlet API, and Pro Hibernate 3.
