A Good Start

This book gives a brief introduction to servlet programming. If you are a beginner then this book is for you. If have some experience with web programming then you might want to look for another title. Buy this if you are new to Java and Servlets....

100 Times Better Than Jason Hunter's book...

This is a great book on Servlets. I don't understand why there are so many bad reviews on this book. It teaches you the basics and goes beyond the API docs. If you want a thorough walkthrough of the Java Servlet FAQ, then go grab the book by Jason Hunter :-).

Good Book For understanding step by step Servlets Prog.

It is clearly explained what are different types of formats in which data can be submitted over Internet and also it clearly explains step by step how to setup the JRun Server for running Servlets. Some part of setting up Java Web Server is also touched.

Execllent intro to using JDBC from servlets.

This book was excellent as well as well-edited (very few typos compared to other computer books). I found the JDBC sections to be very useful, especially as they relate to the web. That is a highly relevant area to be covering in servlets. The code examples are also very useful. There is a lot of coverage of JDBC in the book. It is definitely the best book on servlets that I have seen out there. My only criticism of the book is that, while it covers lots of JDBC, it barely covers session management, cookies, and some of the other issues that servlet authors need to be aware of in using the web as a communication medium. The only improvement to the book could be that it could cover less JDBC and more web-specific information. All in all this was a really good book though and the information inside of it is presented very well.

A great book to learn the ins and outs of servlets

This book not only gives you a great introduction to programming servlets (including hosting and configuration, chaining, etc.) but also delves into related topics such as HTTP tunneling and using introspection to simplify servlet programming. I especially liked the amount of JDBC/RMI information included in the book since many servlets written will want to interface to other Java servers or databases. Having written an article on servlets for BYTE, I was pleased to find this much information packed in the book. My only disappointment is that the author didn't include more on managing state with servlets (e.g. through cookies) and about the future of servlets (covering developments such as Servlet Beans, and the impact, if any, of EJB on the servlet standard). All in all, a great servlet book!
