It is the best book that I had


I anticipated this book as an excellent resource for developing my database project. The most important thing is that the book covers most of useful controls. Especially, a DataGrid control sample that contains lookup fields helped me in deveople my code.

Very Good Book but Misses Links


If your developing device drivers in 2000/2001 for a Windows operating system then this book is simply a must have. I purchased Chris Cant's book first because I had the misimpression that Oney's book was written a year earlier than it was and didn't really address Win2K as well as it does. I couldn't have been more wrong. Just flipping though the pages alone, it seems bigger and more authoritative. Code snips are kept quite small and the numerous diagrams and tables mean you don't have to keep refering back to the DDK as much or seaching for the right header file to find the definition of a perticular structure.
You might also want to consider investing in some colored tabs at your local office supply store because you well spend a lot of time flipping between sections.
If you can only get one book, get this one, or at least get this one first. But quite honestly you really need both books because each has it's strengths and it really helps to have the same thing explained in different ways and words. Plus you can never have too much sample code.

Struts users have found the Holy Grail


This is the second outstanding book on struts to arrive on the shelves in the last month. What a treat for anyone using struts. These books really do compliment each other and, unless you are ready to write your own book on struts, you need this one too. You rarely find programmers who can provide a visual sweep in diagrams of what is happening with an application or framework. Thank God for UML, which helps some. Chuck Cavaness, however, has a knack for presenting the big picture. He clearly knows what is going on and can show it. I was thinking that after Struts in Action he would be feeling down, because that is such a good book. He can stand toe-to-toe with that offering. This is a battle of good luck for the reader. I hope there is a third book coming like these two, although I know there is not, or I would have heard about it. This is better than a very good book. I would say great book, but I don't want to sound gushy.
