Product Description

About the Author

Giulio Zambon s first love was physics, but he decided to dedicate himself to software development more than 30 years ago: back when computers were still made of transistors and core memories, programs were punched on cards, and Fortran only had arithmetic IFs. Over the years, he learned a dozen computer languages and worked with all sorts of operating systems. His specific interests were in telecom and real-time systems, and he managed several projects to their successful completion. In 2001 Giulio founded his own company offering computer telephony integration (CTI) services, and he used JSP and Tomcat exclusively to develop the web side of the service platform. Back in Australia after many years in Europe, he now dedicates himself to writing software to generate and solve numeric puzzles. His web site, http://zambon.com.au/, is written in JSP on his dedicated server, which, unsurprisingly, runs Tomcat!

Well, I was expecting something different..

I 've read the first 60 pages and I still feel confused. There was barely a "Hello world" example..

My background has a little bit of java.. I am not sure if this book is made for beginners.. Though I can understand what I read, I cannot find any connection between the topics..

I did not even find any explanation about some terms like "servlet" etc..

I went quickly through the book just to see the areas that covers and I was disappointed that there was no implementation for a secure login system where the credentials are kept in a database.

I 'd love to see more comments by other people.. maybe my background is too poor for this book.. I believe this book is NOT for people who have a basic knowledge on programming or are completely beginners.

For now I gave only 2 stars. I 'll keep reading the book and I 'll come back to add a few comments or even change the rate!

I gave up on this book after a couple of chapters and got the Head First Servlets and JSP book instead. I'm finding the latter much easier to follow. The main problem is that it assumes you have an in-depth knowledge of servlets which, as a beginner, I simply don't have. I'll probably come back to it after finishing the Head First book.

HASH(0x9975951c) out of 5 stars All you need to know to get going 12 Dec. 2012
By STP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author gradually brings you from "nowhere" to JSP, then JSF, using Tomcat and basic Java. Using Eclipse IDE. He explains and show you how to implement the Model View Controller (MVC) approach.

All his instructions on getting all you need, downloading, installing, configuring, are clear enough. A few typos here and there in the book. Really worth the price of the book!

Not sure though this is for "don't know anything about programming" reader! But for one who has already done some programming, I'm sure this is an excellent book.

HASH(0x99a3c144) out of 5 stars Great book for JSP noobs 19 Oct. 2013
By Adam F - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
**Note: I purchased the kindle e-book version of this product**

In my opinion, this book assumes a prior basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and Java programming. It builds upon that information by introducing the reader to JSP. I gave the book 5 stars for the following reasons...

1) The book walks you through installing all of the (free) software that you need to get started working with JSP. I was instructed to install Eclipse (a Java IDE), and Tomcat (web server software). This software can be found (and downloaded) for free on the Internet.

2) The book also walks you through configuring Eclipse and Tomcat.

3) The book comes with downloadable example files and an example web-app that you can load, examine and edit, etc.

HASH(0x99a3c048) out of 5 stars Real-World, Hands-On Examples! 3 May 2013
By Belden Schroeder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What I liked most about this book is that it gives you a hands-on, real-world, example application to create. And like most example applications I've seen in the technical books I read, this one is a shopping application. The author takes you through three different variations of the application, the third one being more JSF-like that is XML-based. As this version seems more "modern", I spent most of my time understanding that example...but I had to get through the first few chapters that build up to it.

The book also has you construct a simple shopping database using MySQL to support your example applications. You don't need to be a MySQL expert to set this up, however. Another plus is that the author takes you through the basics of how the Tomcat server is constructed. I've always been afraid to peer inside the folders of this server, but after reading this book I have more confidence in messing with the context.xml and server.xml files.

HASH(0x99953c60) out of 5 stars ... code Java and understand object oriented programming and are comfortable with JRE and JDE 27 Feb. 2015
By KMH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book should only be considered for beginners to can already code Java and understand object oriented programming and are comfortable with JRE and JDE. Further, I think the way the author lays out content is pretty confusing. I am a competent programmer in PHP, JavaScript, Python and several others (C++, C#, ColdFusion). But as a noob to Java, this was extremely difficult for me to follow. I am getting a different book.

HASH(0x99963600) out of 5 stars A few chapters in but a little dissapointed 2 April 2014
By Dan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm very new to JSP and Tomcat and although there has been a lot of useful information in hereI'm disappointed that in chapter 3 the whole basis of it that is supposed to be included in Tomcat is not there. If anyone would explain to me where the emusicstore is supposed to be in Tomcat (as it is not where he suggests and is not anywhere online) then I would change my review.
