3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Frank Carver VINE VOICE on 19 Nov. 2003
This is a big and heavy book, but it needs to be to cover the scope of servlets, JSP and EJB in a practical and detailled way, It includes a lot of real code listings for practical projects. The downside with wide-scope books is that sometimes individual areas get less attention than they might in a more specific book. To some degree that's true for the EJB material in this book. What the book covers well is getting all the various server-side Java APIS to work together. If you want an in-depth treatment of EJB you are much better off getting one of the more focussed EJB books. This book covers Servlets 2.3, JSP 1.2, and some of EJB 2.0.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Keith Sterling on 14 May 2002
This is a big book, close to 1000 pages and does an excellent job of teaching a huge subject. The coverage of Servlets and Java Server Pages and all the associated technologies that go with them ( Tag Libraries, Javascript, caching, authentication etc etc ) are clear, concise and very easy to follow.
Don't expect to become and EJB expert from the coverage in the book, the 6 chapters at the end of the book are ideal for Servlet and JSP programmers who either need to intergrate or develop small scale EJB applications. The information is accurate and the examples well worked out.
I find it a bit strange to dedicate a whole chapter ( all 5 pages ) on how to download a file, and then the next chapter ( all 18 pages ) on how to up load a file, but each chapter does cover a new topic so understand why
Overall a very good book and I would definately recommend this to the Servlet and JSP developers in my teams

A must have for all serious web devlopers 23 April 2002
By "webmaster888" - Published on
This book has exceeded all my expectations by far in underscoring important real-life developer¡¯s problems and solutions. It includes many solutions and behind the scene explanation of many servlet/JSP technologies that are not found any where else. I am also impressed by the ease of learning of an almost complete array of servlet/JSP technologies as it pertains to web development. Having read many books available in JSP technologies, this book is a must have for all serious web developers who wish to apply JSP technologies daily.

Must read fo Java beginner 1 May 2002
By "okkyn" - Published on
This book is well explained step by step. You do not need deep knowledge of web programming or Java to start reading this book. Examples are excelent and most off all, it covers all Java's web programming technologies in one book!

Are you a web programmer? Want to move up to Java? 1 May 2002
By Alwi Wijaya - Published on
This is the book!
I consider myself a seasoned asp/vb programmer. Having done quite a number of projects on them, all involving 3-tier architecture, I always want to know what's the hype surrounding Java thing.
I've tried some books on this subject, even went as far as taking a night class, without any clue what I can do with this language.
Few weeks ago, I decided to give this book a chance. I never look back ever since!
Unlike most Java books that only throw you the pieces of the puzzle, this book has the glue to almost all of them. And some missing pieces too if you consider the real-world examples.
Highly recomended!

Java` 28 April 2002

With Servlets, JSP and EJB
Budi Kurniawan
REVIEWED BY: Barbara Rhoades
BOOK REVIEW: Servlets, JSP and EJB - know what these mean? If not, check out Chapter One for a definition of servlets and JSP and Chapter 28 for EJB's definition. This book is definitely written for a programmer of web sites rather than a WYSIWUG user. It contains lots of already written code and does provide definitions of terms all through the book.
The CD contains some of the files so you can work through what is being discussed. 33 Chapters and 7 appendices give one more material than can be read and understood in one sitting.
If you want to learn more about Java and how to program with it, add this book to your library.
