Apache Struts 2 Documentation > Home > Tutorials > Getting Started
The framework documentation is written for active web developers and assumes a working knowledge about how Java web applications are built. For more about the underlying nuts and bolts, see the Key Technologies Primer.

Follow along with these tutorials to get started using Struts 2. The example project for each tutorial is available online at Google Code - http://code.google.com/p/struts2-examples/downloads/list in two different versions: one version with all artifacts using Ant to build the application and one version using Maven to manage the artifacts and build the application.

The Struts 2 user mailing list is an excellent place to get help. If you are having a problem getting the tutorial example applications to work search the Struts 2 mailing list. If you don't find an answer to your problem, post a question on the mailing list.
