    Java Servlet & JSP Cookbook

    Very useful and well written. I would recommend this book to someone interested in its topic. An adequate reference on this topic.The presentation of the book is neat. It covers real-world problems, and provides concise, practical solutions to each. This book targets Java web developers of all levels. Less experienced web developers who prefer to learn by doing, this book is a great store for cooked recipes. I really liked the section on custom tag libraries and JSTL. Tag Libraries are a great way to avoid scriptlet code and it is one of the best practices

    Over 130 Hacks!

    The 'cookbook' in the title means that Perry emphasises what he considers to be many common tasks needed to be done by Java Servlets and JSPs, in a J2EE context. Similar in spirit to OReilly's other books like 'eBay Hacks' and 'google Hacks'. In fact, in the 26 chapters of Perry's book, there are on average over 5 tasks in each that he explains, which are akin to the hacks of the other books. Except here, he gives you over 130 hacks. He assumes you know the basics of the subject. Certainly, the book does not claim to be a comprehensive listing of the subject's features. But if you satisfy this requirement, you can dive straight into any section of any chapter. Don't have to read this book linearly. However, if you aren't using Tomcat or BEA WebLogic as containers, then the relevance of the book may, frankly, be more limited. Different containers have slightly different functionalities, and the examples he gives are very specific to those 2 containers. If you are in fact using another, perhaps you can use this book to provide design patterns and inspiration, but not actual code.
