Very good book on servlet and JSP

The book covers every important aspect of servlet and jsp technologies with nice samples.I do totally recommend this for everyone willing to learn servlet/jsp.

Good book

I rate it 5 stars just because Ken Januski underrated it. Do not believe Januski. I can suppose he simply dous not know what he is talking about. This is far not the "worst book", this book is good and it actual rating must be 4 stars. The only one lack is that it is not suitable as your first book on the topic. Servlets are explained on only 70 pages, there are not many examples there, so you need some knowledge to read this book. But anyway, its worth buying.

Best book you can get on Java web development

If you are a Java developer (which I am) and want to develop Web Applications and learn Servlets and JSP, you can't go wrong with this book. In fact, in my opinion, this is one of the best Java books on any subject that you can buy. Much has been written on the subjects of servlets and JSP, but it is rare that the key concepts for truly understanding these subjects are put in sufficient context to grasp the big picture of developing full featured web applications. What separates this book from the rest is the well structured way each concept is clearly presented and put into the larger context to explain the relevance of the concept to the larger picture of developing web applications. In particular, for each concept, the reader is led through a typical developer path of first getting the technology to operate, and then shown how initial quick and dirty development patterns are improved by more sophisticated design patterns. Patterns for error handling, filters, security, internationalization, and especially the user presentation model view controller (MVC) pattern are clearly explained, and their use in web application development is demonstrated.The issues of where to place functionality: in servlets, filters, tags, JSPs, scriplets, EJB(!), etc. are brought out in such a way that the reader can learn the relevance of each technology that has emerged in the Java web application development universe, which has been characterizedby fast evolving releases of approaches to dealing with the integration of Java and HTML/XML components. It is demonstrated that these technologies have finally converged to a set of tools that can enable the Java developer to have full command of web application development. In summary, I highly recommend this book and believe it is a milestone, in that it shows that Java has now evolved into a truly powerful web application development platform.

Excellent book with thorough coverage...

This is by far the best book I have ever read about servlets and jsps. I have several books on the subject, and this is the first one that explains the subject matter in a logical, understandable way. The authors do an excellent job of covering all the material needed to understand and use the material in real world development.The book is organized in a logical and well thought out manner. Each chapter builds on the chapters that precede it, and the last chapter, Building a Complete Web Application, is the best idea I've seen in a long time, integrating information from all the preceding chapters into a project that is practical and usable in the real world with some minor modifications.The code examples are functional, and the ones that do contain errors, which are not many, are well documented in the errata portion of the book's supporting website, which is a good resource for the book.Without a doubt the best book on the subject I have.

Excellent tutorial on thin client and JSP/Servlets

Unlike the previous reviewer, I have found this book to be an excellent introduction to and tutorial on the J2EE presentation tier. Although most of my career I have been developing the server side (C++, Java), in tha past I developed rich (using Java Swing) or thin (using Microsoft's Active Server Pages) clients. In other words, major concepts and patterns of client development are not new to me. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed reading this book.Specifically I like this book for the balanced and professional style in which the authors' present its material: they focus not only on the technological aspects of JSP and Servlets, but dedicate considerable amount of material to instill best practices and design patterns. They dedicated an entire chapter to the design patterns, in addition to explaining the best practices (dos and don'ts) in other chapters throughout the book. This should be especially beneficial to novices: unfortunately too many of them learn *only* technological aspects of programming; working on their own, without the guidance of experienced leads or designers, they crank out absolutely horrible and un-maintainable code that becomes a liability to both their employer and customers. The chapters on security, patterns, multi-client support, and ways to manage the web application state all explain and reinforce designs that produce robust and manageable systems that can evolve.
