    5.0 out of 5 stars Very good reference for the Java savvy 19 Feb 2002
    I found this to be a very valuable reference, as well as a quick-start on JSP, Servlet and J2EE presentation-layer architecture.
    I like the author's no-nonesense approach and explanations in terms of real platforms (eg: JRun and Tomcat servlet engines).
    The book is well structured, comprehansive, well focused on JSP/servlet layer, and provides the reader with exactly what it says in the title: "The complete reference to JSP".
    Wish other authors could also be precise, rather than trying to be "JSP, Servlet, EJB,Italian cooking and..." and running into 1000+ pages of words with little content.

    I am halfway through and this is the best Java book I've read. It's up there with Flanaghan's O'Reilly series. Everything you want to know about JSP is covered. How a JSP is translated into a servlet. What the life cycle is. Threading implications. Concurrency/Pooling. As a bonus, you can learn JDBC in one chapter, HTML Forms in another, beans in another. Really excellent value for money.

    5.0 out of 5 stars JSP - More than a reference 23 Sep 2001
    By A Customer
    I bought this book in order to get a reference for JSP programming because I already had some experience with JSP. But when I starded to read the book I realised it's more than a reference. It has really good examples you can easily adapt for your own applications and if you're a real beginner then it teaches you everything from the start. However you can also use it as reference only.
    The book is easy to read and you can see the author new what he was writing about.
    I can really recommend this book to everyone who wants to get into JSP.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable 20 Dec 2001
    By A Customer
    Starting a new job I was dropped in at the deep end with JSP's with which I had had no previous experience. I immediately ordered this book and I'm glad I did. It covers everything you need to know from the simple to the complex: JDBC, JSP Tag libraries, XML, JavaBeans, Thread Management, etc.
    If I had any complaints about the book I'd say I would have liked a CD included with the source code and a JSP enabled server such as tomcat or an evaluation of JRun. The source code is available online, however its still nice to get the CD. I have also found that the book can be slightly brief in some areas such as JavaMail but nevertheless its an excellent resource and reference point.
    Keep in mind that this book is not suitable for those unfamiliar with the Java language.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference material 3 Oct 2001
    By A Customer
    This book really is an excellent source of information, particularly for those new to the world of JSP. I usually stick to the Wrox series of books but this one stands far above as a starting point and on-going JSP reference book.
