The Barnes & Noble Review
These days, virtually all Java and web developers need some JSP skills. But JSP 2.0’s added power makes it more complex. This book “re-flattens” the learning curve, helping you get productive fast, even if you have only light programming experience.

The authors rely constantly on hands-on examples. By Chapter 2, you’re creating dynamic pages to present data. Soon, you’re creating simple web storefronts, then using JSP and CSS to control look and feel. You’ll get comfortable with JSTL, directives, and standard actions; perform error handling; build custom tags; even internationalize content.

Next, you’ll turn to using JSP to drive modern web applications. The authors introduce MVC, then show how to use JSP in the context of frameworks like Spring and Struts. There’s detailed coverage of security, database access, even JSF. Start out a beginner, finish as an expert. Bill Camarda, from the May 2005 Read Only
