Fabulous Book

I've never been so happy to find a book as I've been to find this one! If you're like me, this is the perfect book for you, and from what I can tell, it's one of a kind.I'd seen books on Java (servlets), books on JSP, books on XML, and understand the concepts of presentation/application/data layers for web applications. Unfortunately, all the books seemed to treat these techonologies as if they were stand-alone solutions. The clear focus of this book is how to get these technologies to work together to provide an elegant, modular, and easily maintainable solution to application problems.Even in the first chapters (basic JSP application), the book is already laying out it's primary theme. It specifically draws your attention to the way the JSP's use Java in two basic areas. The first half being the creation and manipulation of objects, and the second half being the presentation of the data. It then explains that in a few chapters you'll learn that the top half should be in a servlet and the JSP should focus on the second half.IRT some of the other reviews I've read...Yes, you need to know some Java. This book isn't going to explain classes, polymorphism, inheritance, or interfaces to you -- it expects that you know what they mean. But simply working through a few Sun trails or a Java-in-24-hours type book will be enough.Also, if the phrase "multi-tier application architecture" sounds like a foreign language phrase, then this book isn't really focused toward the obstacles that you're currently dealing with. A good chunk (about 1/2, I'd say) of the book is meant to clear up how to use these technologies in a multi-tier environment. If you don't know what one is, then a lot of the book is going to seem irrelevant.But if you do know what "multi-tier" means, and you have understanding of the technologies, this is the book that fills in the gaps involved with integrating them together in a single solution.

Good Examples of Practical Solutions

This is an excellent book for someone who wants to learn more about JSP and Servlets. There are great chapters on handling form data, working with cookies, using the Session, Request, and Response objects, Model-View-Controller (MVC), writing data to a database, and creating a shopping cart using JSP and Servlets. This book will not teach you JSP and Servlets, but it will give you good examples of practical solutions to common everyday web programming issues using these technologies. There are even chapters on 3-tiered programming using JSP with RMI, CORBA, and EJB. And there is an added bonus of getting to build a wireless web application...very cool.

A perfect addition the technical library

Simply put - a must have for the serious web based application developer! Rarely (if ever) do you find a gem such as this, which serves as an unparalleled reference guide for the Java architect, provides a leg up for experienced software developers looking to delve into writing web applications using Java, as well as gives web designers some insight into server-side programming with Java. Nowhere else have I seen a work, in such a practical manner, fully explain Java web application architecture and how to implement JSP and servlets together, and apply them beyond HTML, to create XML documents and files and even applications for the wireless web! Also, where else do you find all this as well as indepth coverage of security, EJB, CORBA, and RMI?

Great examples, easy to read...

This book is more than I expected to get from a text on JSP and Servlets. It will suffice if you need a reference but is much more powerful if you want to build real world apps using Java and the Internet. Some of the best examples are Building a Wireless Application, Creating On-the-Fly Graphics, and Using EJB. Also has good chapters on using CORBA, RMI, and XML from JSP and Servlets.The author gives code for the examples so it's easy to get your own site up and running with a few changes here and there. I also like that the explanations are more conversational than most tech books so it's enjoyable reading.
