Introduces web-page authors and programmers to the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL), an important new Java standard that simplifies the creation of dynamic web pages.
- The book introduces web-page authors and programmers to the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL).
- JSTL is, broadly speaking, an add-on to the JSP standard; its goal is to make JSP pages easier to develop, especially for nonprogrammers.
- JSTL allows its users to manipulate XML, access relational databases, format text, internationalize web applications, and introduce general control-flow logic into JSP pages -- all with HTML-like tags that are accessible to web-page authors.
- The book covers all features of the JSTL 1.0 standard. It is targeted primarily at web-page authors, who know HTML but don't necessarily know how to program.
