Product Description

About the Author

Kevin Duffey's work soon shifted to the J2EE technology as it became available. At the time the company application only used Java in the web tier, so Kevin focused on mastering servlets and JavaServer pages. While converting the site to JSP, Kevin discovered that MVC and Model 2 development was superior to his present undertaking and soon started on a path to convert the entire site in that direction, using his own MVC framework.

Richard Huss is a Technical Architect in the Java team at Wrox Press, creating titles focusing on J2EE web tier technologies, and can never resist downloading new and interesting open-source Java stuff.

Vikram Goyal has over 5 years of experience in Java, having worked for Ernst and Young LLP, Citibank and Australia's Health Insurance Commission.

Excellent coverage of the fundamental issues. 12 Jan. 2002
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Over the past 3 years a number of issues have surfaced with regard to the development of web sites and applications with Java.

Different appraoches have been tried with certain ones emerging as the winners.

This book identifes and describes the winning approaches in:

- session hassels with frames and page layout
- navigation issues
- security
- personization
- content management
- use of xml in the web site, etc.
- overview of struts and design pattters based on it.

I have sat in many developer sessions where these problems were being discussed and every one of them would have benefited from the insights in this book.

The book ins't for battle hardend veterns who have discovered these answers already the hard way, it is for up and coming developers who whould rather not have to.

Good ideas, bad explinations 11 Aug. 2002
By bart wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I hope no one else has the same bad experience as me so this is just a warning. I spent around 20 hours trying to get the example in chapter 2 to work. I've installed apache/tomcat with IIS several times and it has never taken more than a couple of hours -point being figuring out struts shouldn't take very long. After struggling with this book I got another book "Apache Jakarta-Tomcat" and read their 10 page exerpt on struts. The 10 page explination in the Apache book helped me much more than the 63 pages in chapter 2. The explinations were much more clear and the struts frame work was very simple to understand. After reading the apache book I went back through the example found in chapter 2 and found SEVERAL errors in the source code! I wasted a lot of time because I had thought I installed struts incorrectly. It was frustrating to waste so much time just because the source code in chapter 2 was incorrect. If chapter 2 had explained struts more clearly I probably could have caught the errors in the source code. Chapter 2 explains about 500 ideas with no real concrete examples to show you what it's talking about. Then it speeds through an example (that doesn't work) and it doesn't really show you at all how everything is finally tied together.
To be fair, the book does have a disclaimer in the beging which states that it's for more advanced users. So if you aren't very very familiar with struts don't start with this book. Once you get past the struts nightmare the rest of the book is pretty good. I wouldn't say the explinations aren't very good but the ideas they present are very usefull.

Learn more advanced about Jsp with other techniques. 18 Mar. 2002
By Rakesh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book really helps you to kickstart JSP and Struts based development,
This book covers following issues
- an overview of web programming with JSP and Servlets.
- Struts Framework.
- a range of basic techniques for handling the client-side of web site design,
which includes HTTP and browser compability,frames,PopUp windows, Page layouts,
the duynamic constructionof site navigation,error handling and logging.
- tecniques for connecting Java web application to relational database, and for
integrating them as part of an overall J2EE solution.
- security and user management,visitor tracking and personalization.
- XML.It looked at the web application framework that uses XML document fragment
rather than JavaBean when passing data around,making it much easier to integrate
with a web services back end.
Many JSP developers will want to read this book to learn about Struts and other
ways of producing maintainable JSP based web sites.
This is not the kind of book you would read from start to finish but as a quick
overview and reference of some advanced topics. Don't expect to become an expert
by reading this book but you will have a good idea what you can and should do with
JSP. Most JSP developers will find something new in this book but some will require
more detail. We would recommend this book to JSP developers who have read the beginners
JSP books and want to learn more about JSP.
very good 1 May 2003
By S C n - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is definitely not a beginner book.
But all the chapters are good even though it was written by different authors.
The section on refactoring in the beginning set the tone of the book. Good authors. Would recommend this book to anyone working with jsps. Very easy language to understand too. The reason I gave it a 4 is 'coz I understood it more only after I began working with jsps for a while.
