5.0 out of 5 stars Beginning JSP, JSF, and Tomcat Web Development
Web development using JSP, JSF and the various periferal technologies is both vast and complex. This book packs a lot of information into a tight volume and achieves a nice balance between technical implementation and general concepts. I regard this as one of the better technical books I have read and it has gone a long way to bringing together, all the pieces of the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful
I started this book with almost zero knowledge of HTML/Java script/JSP/Tomcat. By installing Tomcat & Eclipse to my Debian linux laptop (all FREE downloadable software) and then working through this book I've learnt to develop dynamic web sites.
(p.s. O'Reilly "Tomcat The Definitive Guide" book helped get Tomcat installed and working)

4.0 out of 5 stars a great introduction to JSP, 28 April 2008

This review is from: Beginning JSP, Jsf, and Tomcat Web Development: From Novice to Professional (Paperback)
This book gives you a thorough introduction to database driven web application development with JSP and JSF for the Tomcat web server, which is what I needed as I was really approaching the coding part of it as a novice.

Also, the bookshop examples are practical and easy to follow.
They start off with JSP and then become more complex, as you are introduced to
databases (open source MySQL), SQL, XML and finally JSF. Other topics needed for dynamic web development such as HTML and CSS are also well covered.

There aren't many shortcomings for an introductory book, however I feel
that more modern database access techniques such as Hibernate ORM would
have been a nice addition, therefore 4 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Definetly didn't like it, 17 April 2010
This review is from: Beginning JSP, Jsf, and Tomcat Web Development: From Novice to Professional (Paperback)
Terrible book, specially if you're a beginner:

1. Half the book consists of appendixes, most of them quite unnecessary, such as html, sql and installing eclipse.
2. Most of the examples in the book don't work. I downloaded them from the website but they still wouldn't work.
3. The author could have explained the "Hello World" application and the following using a tool such as Eclipse rather than command line compiling. The approach he took doesn't make life easy for a complete beginner.
