Pages: 688

Since its inception in 1999, Enterprise Java has taken the Java programming community by storm--developers have realized its potential for building distributed applications. Today, JavaServer Pages (JSP) continues to harmonize how web designers and programmers create dynamicweb sites. JSP builds on the popular Java servlet technology and makes it easier to develop dynamic web applications--even if you're not a hard-core programmer.JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition is completely revised and updated to cover the substantial changes in the 1.2 version of the JSP specification, and also includes detailed coverage of the new JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL)--an eagerly anticipated specification of a set of JSP elements for the tasks needed in most JSP applications. This book starts off by illustrating how JSP capitalizes on the power of Java servlets to create effective, portable web applications. It shows how to get started using the Apache Tomcat server, and provides detailed coverage of JSP syntax and features, error handling and debugging, authentication and personalization, and how to use JSTL for database access, XML processing, and internationalization.JavaServer Pages recognizes the different needs of the two groups of professionals who want to learn JSP: page authors interested in using JSP elements in web pages, and programmers concerned with learning the JSP API and using JSP effectively in an enterprise application. If you're in the latter group, this book also teaches you such advanced topics as integrating servlets and JavaBeans with JSP, using the popular Apache Struts MVC framework to illustrate how it's done. Finally, the author presents how to develop custom tag libraries, using realistic examples that you can use as a springboard for your own JSP libraries.

"This is a complete, comprehensive, and most of all, practical book. The author excels at sharing his vast expertise so web developers can make the most out of JavaServer Pages and related web technologies."--Pierre Delisle, JSP Standard Tag Library Specification Lead

JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition Review

Comments about O'Reilly Media JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition:

I discovered this book when I was taking an e-Enterprise developer course. I found it to be extemely useful in making sense of and giving practical examples of implementation durning the JSP section of our course. When I had a problem converting an existing JSP assignment (using scriptlets) to using the JSTL with my existing JavaBeans, the author replied to my e-mail query the same day with the solution. I was very impressed. I will certainly look for this author in future publications.

JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition Review

By Michael A.

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition:

I have read this book cover to cover(more than once) and everytime I've learnt something new.

It contains excellent and very useful examples along with complete tag libs with documentation.

Also once I had a problem with one of the examples and emailed the author, he answered my email the next day with solution of the problem(won't see that very often these days!).

JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition Review

By Larry Hannay

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition:

I've been using Java for around 5 years, so I've seen my fair share of books. I just got started on server-side stuff, so naturally I bought a few books - 3 to be exact - on servlets and JSPs.

I liked the short, terse CodeNotes reference that I bought, but the other 2 ... Man, half the time I didn't really understand what I was reading, and I have never seen so many errors in my life! Honestly, I didn't know if it was because the server-side was so confusing or if the authors and publishers (none were O'Reilly) just didn't care.

Then I bought this book and I am once again a happy camper. Both the text and examples are clear, concise, useful, and error-free. I really like the way the author not only explains concepts, but tells me why it is important that I know them.

JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition Review

By Alexander Meau

from Undisclosed

Comments about O'Reilly Media JavaServer Pages, 2nd Edition:

I have just purchased a copy of this book from local bookstore. It has the same title, same book-cover, same edition (2nd), and same publisher(O Reily); however, the content of the book is completely different. It covers only up to JSP 1.1. I have double checked the ISBN number, and it is different as well. I am going to return mine tomorrow... BEWARE...BEWARE...
