Introducing Web page authors and programmers to the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL), this guide covers all features of the JSTL 1.0 standard. Whether users need to add dynamic content to a static Web page or are in need of providing back-end code, nonprogrammers are shown how to manipulate XML, access relational databases, format text, internationalize Web applications, and introduce general-flow logic into JSPall with HTML-like tags that are accessible to authors of Web pages. Also addressed are techniques for utilizing and extending JSTL's functionality.

Those interested in custom tags or third party tag libraries may want to purchase the book. Having read the official specification a dozen times or more, some of the finer details can be hard to grasp. JSTL includes alot of features, but specifications are often written for experts in the field and are not always obvious to those outside of the expert group. Even though I've been using JSP since 0.9 spec, there's plenty of valuable information contained in shawn's book. If you like to see examples of how things work, this book will help clarify a lot of ambiguities.
