Besides being a useful guide to APIs, the book looks at a variety of techniques for saving session state, as well as showing how servlets can work together to power Web sites. You will learn performance tips and ways to get servlets to work together (such as forwarding and redirection), plus the basics of database programming with JDBC to build content with "live" data. A later chapter examines what's next for servlets with the emerging Servlet 2.3 API standard. Importantly, the authors go over deploying and configuring Web applications by editing XML files, a must-have for successfully running servlets in real applications.
Since the first edition of this title, the choices for Java Web developers have grown much richer. Many of the new chapters in this edition look at options beyond servlets. Short sections on application frameworks such as Tea, WebMacro, the Element Construction Set (ECS), XMLC and JavaServer Pages (JSPs) let you explore what's out there for Java developers today with a survey of some current tools that can speed up creating new Web applications.
The text closes with reference sections on servlet APIs (and other material) that will be useful for any working developer. Although servlets are not the only game in town, they are still important tools for successful Web development. This updated edition shows you just how to do it with plenty of basic and advanced tips for taking full advantage of this powerful Java standard. --Richard Dragan
Bought this book along with the other book (can't remember the name) that has a steaming golden kettle on the front. I think the author's name is Jason Vorhee. Read morePublished on 31 Aug. 2010 by Chakrit Ratanamook

This book provides a very solid introduction to using servlets, (and to a lesser extent JSP), and if you know some basic Java already you will be up and writing code quickly. Read morePublished on 2 Feb. 2001 by R. Fletcher
