Product Description

From the Back Cover

Build dynamic, database-driven Web sites with Java technologies—step by step!

  • The first book to cover the entire process of building Java-based Web sites
  • Focuses on the most powerful open source tools for enterprise Web development
  • JSP, JDBC, and JavaBeans: practical Java server-side solutions
  • Covers Apache, Tomcat, and PostgreSQL installation, configuration, and use
  • Includes comprehensive case study using powerful Java design patterns

Now, there's a start-to-finish guide to using Java and open source technologies to create cost-effective, scalable Web sites. In JSP and Java, Art Taylor presents real-world scenarios and code examples that leverage today's key Java and open source technologies—including JSP, JavaBeans, the Apache HTTP server, Tomcat JSP/servlet server, and the PostgreSQL database.

Taylor begins by introducing Java-based Web sites: their advantages, key components, and architectural attributes. Then, using powerful Java design patterns, he constructs a complete Web site using Java and open source tools—presenting extensive, carefully documented code examples throughout. JSP and Java covers:

  • Apache Web server and the Jakarta-Tomcat application server: installation, integration, and use
  • Building JavaServer Pages and deploying them on the Tomcat server
  • Installing and configuring the Apache Web server, the world's most popular HTTP server
  • Leveraging the strengths of Apache and Tomcat to maximize application scalability and stability
  • Working with data stored in PostgreSQL databases—including detailed PostgreSQL installation and configuration guidance
  • Extensive code examples for building and deploying custom JSP tags and a discussion group application

JSP and Java is the first book to cover all the technologies needed to build Java-based Web sites. If you're ready to achieve the full promise of enterprise Web development, this is the book you've been searching for.

Good book, but no source code... 5 Feb 2002
By Brenda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I liked the book very much. I found that it provided great coverage of JSP, JavaBeans, and Servlets. But I was frustrated to learn there was no source for code examples. The appendix lists the code, but there is no CD or web site to get the files. The publisher offered no help and there is no contact information for the author. I won't buy another book without access to source code.
This must be for Experienced JSP programmers 25 Jun 2003
By Daniel V. Gomes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought it because it was cheap and I could not afford JSP Complete Reference at that time. Anyway, if you know Java maybe it is best to get an introductory JSP book prior to starting this book.

It gets very confuse, because it throws many information at once and does not explain it in detail. Instead, it is left as known by the reader. The book calls it self Complete Guide, and yet it covers every important aspect of JSP, it fails to teach beginners.

I had to bought a new book and also get a few on line tutorials so it is as complete as it calls it self.

I wonder that I consider it because even though I am intermediate Java programmer, I am completely new to TOMCAT and JSP. Maybe I will change my mind after learning JSP and then being able to understand this book as it should.

LATER EDIT ( 2010 ): Please use ASP.NET and C# instead of any form of Java web programming.
Java is very cool I admit, but not for web.
JSP and JAVA 2 Feb 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
look at 1st a few chaps, could find myself getting more confused. Symply saying the usage of params as well as sort of "why". I could not say "I did my Apache-Tomcat config well fit into each other", even if I read and read... If this were valuable to people who's new to Apache tomcat, it should have had sort of explanation to default configs made by initial Apache/Tomcat installation. To make this book yours truly, reader'd better have sort of experience in Apache/tomcat. Every thing I wanted to know was explained or touched, but I can not figure out how to do. To do is to believe. not that to read to believe. I don't want to kill my time any more reading this, at least at this moment. If you don't have even basic-basic-basic.. commands or concept, think about buying this after you read steb-by-step book first. This is NOT the STEP-BY-STEP book.

Great combination of topics on open-source development 1 Dec 2001
By Chandrashekar Vinayak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is quite rare to find a book that covers all the popular components of open-source development: Apache, Tomcat and PostgreSQL. The book effectively de-mystifies what it takes to develop enterprise-class applications using such tools, especially since Tomcat and Apache are gathering momentum as serious architectural players in the corporate world.
No depth 15 Aug 2004
By Guy Gur-Ari - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First off, the book has a disturbing amount of typos and grammatic errors. It touches a lot of subjects without really digging deep into any of them. Too many references to unexplained or poorly-explained concepts. This book isn't useful to people who have no knowledge of the subject. To those who have some web experience, it provides a laconic tutorial of the discussed subjects.
