Book Review : Stripes:...And Java Web Development Is Fun Again

It has been a hectic 2009. I was working in San Francisco for the past 7 weeks. Back after a long time. I read several books while traveling to and from San Francisco, so you will see many more book reviews in the coming weeks.

Just yesterday, the review for "Stripes:...And Java Web Development Is Fun Again" was posted on Javalobby. Stripes is an amazing framework, and this book with quite funny quotes and excellent working examples makes web development really fun.

You can read the chapter-wise review in detail here.

Are you using Stripes? Have you read this book? Mind sharing your thoughts about Stripes or the book?

Stay tuned for many more reviews for some very interesting books coming soon..


  1. Meera -- I've been using Stripes for a little under a year and can't tell you how much I love it. Compared to the dozens of frameworks out there I've researched/used, this is by far the easiest *for my needs*, which is building dynamic web-based applications.

    The other thing that must be stressed is how friendly the Stripes community is. The IRC channel is wonderful and an amazing place to get great input.

    Thanks for writing about Stripes, and would love to hear how you were able to apply it to one of your projects: What did you do? How did it go? What was different from what you were used to? Why was it better/worse than another framework? etc.
