Course Title: Struts Fast Track
Course Length: 3 Days
Course Number: Struts200
Delivery: Instructor-led, On-Site
Audience: Java programmers with experience writing Servlets and JavaServer Pages.
Description: An in-depth coverage of developing Java Web application using the Struts Framework. This course covers all the topics you need to get you up to speed with Struts in a very short time. It includes all the important concepts, including use of the new JSTL tags (JSP Standard Tag Library), the Tiles library, the Validator framwork and hands on labs that will have you building working Struts applications in no time flat. In addition, this course covers how to extend the Struts framework to fit your unique needs.
Course Outline: Struts is an open source, Model-View-Controller (MVC) framework developed by The Apache Software Foundation as part of its Jakarta project. Struts is built on top of JSP, Servlets, and custom tag libraries. It leverages these technologies to make it easier to use them on large or complex web systems. 

Struts addresses many major issues in using vanilla Servlets/JSP to build web systems.  It solves the problem of controller complexity by removing the workflow logic from the servlets, and directing workflow in an XML configuration file. Struts improves on the limited form support in JSP by adding numerous capabilities to form processing including easy validation, easy error display, and the refilling of form input on form retries from a users previous entries.  It minimizes the complexity of JSP pages, by supplying a very extensive and flexible set of custom tag libraries for many of the standard operations needed in JSP pages.  

This course will get you up to speed with Struts in a very short time.  It includes all the important concepts, and hands on labs that will have you building working Struts applications in no time flat.

Working in a hands-on environment, under the guidance of our experienced subject matter experts, students will learn to:

  • Understand the shortcomings of servlets/JSP, and the need for a framework like Struts
