This guide to IBM's new WebSphere product, WebSphere Application Server--Express, includes information on installation, configuration, management, and deployment. Focusing on what programmers would use in an actual production environment, this handbook helps programmers create a real business application from scratch. Details are included for obtaining, installing, and configuring WebSphere software. Although the basics of Express are covered, users with intermediate or advanced knowledge of Express will benefit from close attention to servlets, JSPs, and JDBC.
