A good reworking of what are now classic JSP design patterns, as codified by Sun and others. You need never have read about design patterns to appreciate this book. But chances are, you're already coding JSPs and Servlets. If so, you need a book like this. At the very least, a rough Model-View-Controller design will aid your coding. But Patzer also goes into more detailed patterns. Like a decorator filler and a front controller. But perhaps as important as any specific pattern is that you get some idea of what to look for as a pattern that might arise out of your work. The patterns in the book show you code reuse, at a higher level than literal reuse of a given body of source code. A very powerful idea for you to grasp. I reiterate. Understanding, using and looking for new patterns moves you into the realm of design. Increases your experience and your value. Design is higher margin work. Makes your skill sets more valuable. He also introduces you to the discipline of testing. Especially having a unit testing framework. And since this is java, you have JUnit to help you.
