Editorial Reviews

Together, JavaServer Pages, Tomcat, and JavaServer Faces have evolved into a remarkably powerful web development platform. This book teaches you all of these technologies from the ground up, no experience needed.

You'll jump in fast. You'll install all the packages you need (directions are provided, and the software's free). After the authors explain how JSP-based applications are organized, you'll walk through a non-trivial sample application.

Then, step by step, using one complete e-commerce case study, you'll master each key skill you'll need: architecting applications with MVC; essential web page scripting; database access; working with JSF and XML; and deploying applications via the new Tomcat 6.

Finally, drill down into your application: What happens when it starts? How does it handle requests, display content, manage shopping carts, accept orders? What does its style sheet look like? There's no better way to grasp the realities of production web development. Bill Camarda, from the January 2008 Read Only

Meet the Author

Giulio Zambon s first love was physics, but he decided to dedicate himself to software development more than 30 years ago: back when computers were still made of transistors and core memories, programs were punched on cards, and Fortran only had arithmetic IFs. Over the years, he learned a dozen computer languages and worked with all sorts of operating systems. His specific interests were in telecom and real-time systems, and he managed several projects to their successful completion.

In 2001 Giulio founded his own company offering computer telephony integration (CTI) services, and he used JSP and Tomcat exclusively to develop the web side of the service platform. Back in Australia after many years in Europe, he now dedicates himself to writing software to generate and solve numeric puzzles. His web site, http://zambon.com.au/, is written in JSP on his dedicated server, which, unsurprisingly, runs Tomcat!

Michael Sekler is an independent IT consultant for large and small companies. In the last few years, he has worked with open source systems, gaining experience with Linux, and Java technologies. In his spare time, Michael enjoys good music and walks in the countryside.
