More Servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP)
Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages has been an extraordinary success: 100K copies sold world-wide in the first year, 11 foreign translations, the #1 selling servlet and JSP book worldwide last year. The idea of More Servlets and JavaServer Pages is to take the reader from where CSAJSP leaves off. It covers advanced JSP topics not covered in Marty's first book as well as some advances in JSP programming. The combination of Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages and More Servlets and JavaServer Pages provides Java programmers with thorough coverage of servlets and JavaServer pages.-- Perfect companion to Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages-- Covers JDK 1.4 regular expressions-- Explains the new JSP standard tag library in detail-- Complete coverage of the new Apache JSP tag libraries-- Provides practical details for installing and using Tomcat 4, JRun 3.2, the new version of ServletExec, and other upcoming Servlet and JSP engines.Servlets are Java technology's answer to CGI programming. They dramatically simplify the creation of dynamic Web pages and provide e-commerce and intranet developers with an efficient, powerful and portable means of building "Web enabled" applications. JavaServer Pages (JSP) technology is a new approach to separating the static parts of a Web page from the dynamic portion, making the power of servlets accessible to any Web site developer. Now that Servlets and JSP are officially part of the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), virtually every major Web and application server now supports the technology, and it is rapidly becoming the preferred alternative to traditional CGI and the most important component in server-side Webprogramming.This book consists of five parts. Part I provides the reader with a review of the basics. Part II covers the major new servlet and JSP capabilities, and Part III covers Web applications. In Part IV the author covers tag libraries, and in Part V he provides in-depth coverage of optimizing servlet and JSP performance.This book is targeted at all Java or Web programmers as well as CGI developers.The CD-ROM includes all the source code from the book.
