5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden jewel 28 Oct 2001
By Alex H
Format:Paperback
For anyone who wants to "get into" java server pages with an excellent overview of very basic java. This book is only for the beginners, but as such it is unparalleled. I am a professional Cold Fusion developer and have tried to "jump start" my knowledge of java numerous times in my free time before. This book is a revelation. Clear and concise text is immediately followed by screen shots. Basic concepts are explained in a basic manner.
If you are a beginner in java and jsp, this MUST be your first book. It will not be the only one, though, for concepts are really basic, but after this one you'll be able to digest 800-pagers.
Thumbs-up, made me very excited there are still things I need to learn.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent quickstart book 16 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a decent JSP book, but to use it, you'll need to have some prior experience with Java or have another Java reference handy because explainations are brief and not always worded in the best way. I think this book actually serves the purpose of a quick reference better than a tutorial.
I like how each topic opens to its own two page section, breaking things down into digestable chunks of information. However, what I find rather annoying is how code is displayed in various stages of being typed. It presents the reader with the rather tedious task of trying to figure out what was added between snapshots of the code in Windows Notepad. To me, it doesn't make sense to have different shots of 15 lines of code progressively being typed out with explainations given for key points within the incomplete code. I would much rather see those 15 lines all at once and read the explainations of the points of interest like every other book does (and for good reason).

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it... I'll give it to you, if you want. 19 Dec 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's not for beginners. You will need other books to understand it. Most pages are too basic, and it suddenly introduces higher level stuff from nowhere.... The technical support will refer you ... - just use the website instead!

2.0 out of 5 stars Returning my copy! 15 Feb 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Like all the other books in its series, this book is simple and easy to follow. It starts with a brief introduction to Java programming before diving into JSP material. The topics that it covers include: using variables, creating and handling forms, dealing with cookies, adding javabeans, interfacing databases, error handling, custom tags, file handling and servlets.
However, it covers each topic ever so briefly, often ignoring critical details that would leave you unable to make your page display at all! For example, in the Javabeans section, the book tells me to look up my web server for where I store Javabeans. Generally, this book follows a narrow track of possibilities and is best utilized as a throw-away training manual.

5.0 out of 5 stars JavaServer Pages - Your visual blueprint for ... JSP 18 April 2001
By Monica Chen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Perfect book for experienced programmers, as well as new comers, who just begin to learn JSP coding. Read this book first to get your hands on feeling and then read other books for theory. Nice content design, simple to understand. If you cannot start JSP coding from this book, don't try others.
3.0 out of 5 stars Too Fast for beginner 30 April 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book covers everything too fast. If you already have a good knowlege of Java this book, you will be able to apply your knowledge and learn JSP. Unfortunately I don't know much Java and this book covers the examples so fast, that I have no idea how to apply to my own work. I think I'll wait till the JSP Fast and Easy Web Development book comes out. I have the Coldfusion and PHP books in this series. Both are quite good.
